9-8-2013 WOW

In addition to browsing through the Beaux Arts Fair
in downtown Davenport this weekend,
DH & I
went to the Figge Art Museum
to view Buddhist Relics
of the "Loving Kindness Tour" exhibit
that is touring the world right now.

DH & I thought it was kind of funny...
an oxymoron:
"Buddhist Relics"
as Buddha taught non-attachment/letting go...
and not to hold other people or things as sacred...
("If someone tells you he is the Buddha, spit on him!")
yet that is exactly what this exhibit is doing...
revering/regarding as worthy of great honor
former Buddhas!

This is one of those things that make you go, "Hmmmm?!?!?!"
I wonder if the Buddha is spinning in his grave?
