Sunday Post: Valuable

In our world of troubles religion is sore point for many people, with wars fought to eradicate those who do not think quite the same way as someone else. Here Buddhism is so valuable, showing the way towards accepting others as they are, towards valuing each different view, towards loving one another in the way that Jesus taught. Buddhist countries build beautiful temples decorated with valuables as an expression of devotion to the teachings of the Buddha and man’s search for enlightenment. Here is a photo of Swayambhunath Stupa Kathmandu, also known as the Monkey Temple.

      • It seems that’s what eludes most people … 🙂

        I thought you were on Lord Howe Island – but I guess you haven’t left yet! Have a splendid week – it looks like a wonderful place. If it’s anything like Norfolk, it will be grand, and fascinating.

      • Well, I wasn’t in Norfolk 40 years ago, but 20 years ago it was pretty well devoid of development, except for the main street … I rented a motor bike and had the grandest time up hill and down dale – precipices, I seem to remember, and the most magnificent trees!
