Enjoy. Summer is nearly over in New England. Days are getting shorter. YIKES!
It was, of course, nowhere near as offensive as the Incense Dispenser I saw at T.J. Maxx in 2016. [See below] Still amuses me how folks think nothing of disrespecting the Buddha. But, he doesn’t mind since he is not around and I doubt whether too many truly devout Buddhists shop at Marshalls or T.J. Maxx. C’est la vie.
The first thing that crossed my mind was Buddha and snow. After some thought I came to the conclusion that he probably did encounter some snow in his travels — since the physical domain he operated in (discounting the supernatural flying through the air stories) did encroach upon the foothills of the Himalayas. I doubt whether he saw much snow but he probably did see some — maybe just in the distance, on the mountains.
Then I was struck by the supreme irony. Buddha trapped inside a glass globe! Wow. He hated being trapped. He so desperately wanted out — out of everything. So, this is a rather cruel joke — of sorts.
Did I buy it? NO. Just too this picture with my Google Pixel 2.
