"I never see what has been done; I only see what remains to be done."
Alongside the development of our new website at www.thebuddhasface.co.uk we decided it would be great fun, a potentially useful project and hopefully inspire ourselves and others to create a web-savvy ‘101’ list of useful information about the Buddha and the practice of Buddhism around the world.We also thought it would be useful to write about some of the meanings,symbolism and iconography that lie behind the Buddha images that we have for sale on our website.
When we began the project we naievely thought that 101 "things about Buddhism" was a massive piece of research but quickly found once we had begun that we surpassed 101 items in record time so now the project has morphed into 1001 pieces of information of interest about the Buddha and Buddhism but still called 'Buddhism 101'.
What a wonderful and beautiful journey of discovery and enlightenment we are now on and and we have both learnt an enormous amount on this journey though there is so much more to learn and unlearn.
