I really don’t know where this stunning Buddha artwork has come from but it looks like a typical Japanese manga cityscape with a Buddha at its heart radiating light at the centre of a dark and seemingly demonic city.
And that’s why I find it so inspiring - the simple image sums up precisely what the message of the Buddha is - light in a darkening world – making sense of the chaos of our lives and reminding us of the transient nature of ourselves and our existence. A man who thought long and hard and in the end realizes that only compassion can save us from ourselves.
“On life's journey faith is nourishment, virtuous deeds are a shelter, wisdom is the light by day and right mindfulness is the protection by night. If a man lives a pure life, nothing can destroy him.” Buddha
