Buddha @ home


inspired by the tittle "Buddha @ Home", i finally invited one to our home. i have always wanted to get a buddha statue but some how, or maybe the time wasn't right, it never happen. i think right now is perfect timing, considering a lot have been going on in my life. it is a gift from my family for my birthday present.

ordered one from sukhi hotu bookshop, and when the day finally came for me to pick it up, i was feeling so excited and so full of joy, the kind of joy that you would wanna have when inviting a buddha home. :-)

i took the statue to Brickfields Maha Vihara the very next day for blessing. everything went smoothly, Rev. Ratana was at the shrine hall, did some chanting and yeah... it's good for home.

looking at the buddha reminds me the purpose of my existance - to be happy.
