“One’s hear a lot; one’s eyes see a lot.
The wise person should not believe everything seen or heard”.
“Attention is living; inattention is dying.
The attentive never stop; the inattentive are dead already”.
I saw this Thaï monk who was posing for some of his friends during the International Tipitaka Chanting Ceremony, nearby the Bodhi Tree which is behind the Mahabodhi Temple, the place of Gautama Buddha’s attainment of nirvana (Enlightenment), in Bodh Gaya (बोधगया), in the Indian state of Bihar.
He accepted that I took his portrait and I was thinking then that he had the features of many wooden sculptures of Buddhas that I saw.
