Yaksha: What is the most wonderful thing?
Yudhisthira: The most wonderful thing is that even though every day one sees countless living entities dying, he still acts and thinks as if he will live forever.
Today’s photo continues the series I initiated yesterday from my visit to the local Buddhist monastery. This Thai yaksha, or yak, is one of two such figures standing in front of the Buddhist Theravada Temple on the grounds of Kissimmee’s Wat Florida Dhammaram. The yaksha are giant mythological guardians whose job is to keep away evil spirits.
Many of the photos on my blog are now offered on Etsy.
