Buddha Reflecting

“…for you know that soft is stronger than hard, water stronger than rock, love stronger than force.”
― Hermann Hesse,
Siddhartha

Here is the final photo — and the only one not in B&W — I will be sharing this week from my walk around the Wat Florida Dhammaram monastery in Kissimmee. This Buddha figure is one of two that are positioned in front of the Uposoth (“Observance Day Hall”), the main temple structure on the property. I hope you have enjoyed this series of photos as much as I enjoyed making them.

Clarity

“Be obscure clearly.”
— Elwyn Brooks “E.B.” White

Just a few miles from my home is Wat Florida Dhammaram — a Buddhist monastic compound replete with statues and altars and flowers and clouds of sinus-triggering incense. There are several monks who live and work on the premises, too. It’s a very interesting place to visit and photograph, and I found myself there the other night after dinner with friends who were unaware of its existence. I didn’t have my camera at the time, but decided to go back yesterday morning to capture a few shots. I will share a few of those images this week, beginning with this one, which is a view of the 22-foot tall Buddhalila (Walking Buddha) statue on the southeast end of the property.

Crucified

I gave in, and admitted that God was God.
