Today is a day to bring more of the weird and wonderful regarding the Buddha image as it impacts on the creativity and ingenuity of human beings. The Buddha and the Buddhist way can be fairly seen as a panacea for most of the problems of human existence but also as a path to good health. Following the Five precepts and eschewing drugs and alcohol as well as a good diet and way of mind as Buddhist hope to practice is your best guarantee of good health and a purposeful long life. For everything else there's MasterCard or pop a pill to get better.
Rather perversely for my taste the picture above is of a Buddha head covered entirely with pills - whatever will they think of next a Buddha made out from syringes. (hurries off to the web to find out!).
Without health life is not life; it is only a state of langour and suffering - an image of death.
