Nice Try, But That’s Not How You Gain Enlightenment

Filed under: Random Stuff — Brian Lutz @ 1:54 am

For better or for worse, depictions of religious figures have become increasingly commonplace these days.  Whether for the intent of veneration, sacrelige or just plain kitsch, you can find a staggering array of figures depicting the deity of your choosing you can think of (the ones considered to be punishable by death notwithstanding.)  I don’t think it matters what religion you choose, I think we can all agree that this is just plain tacky:

I don’t understand a lot about the philosophy of Buddhism (mostly what I learned from research for a project in high school), but I do know that Buddhist philosophy isn’t big on materialism.  Although I doubt that the Buddha would say anything about something like this, I suspect he would disapprove of it as well.
