A new attitude-Picture of the Day

I find Buddha statues very soothing and calming. I am not Buddhist, but I do understand and agree with some of the concepts of Buddhism.

I went around snapping pictures for today and was simply looking for texture and cool lighting. This picture won.

Here are some thoughts on Buddhism to ponder:

About Buddhism

The greatest achievement is selflessness.
The greatest worth is self-mastery.
The greatest quality is seeking to serve others.
The greatest precept is continual awareness.
The greatest medicine is the emptiness of everything.
The greatest action is not conforming with the worlds ways.
The greatest magic is transmuting the passions.
The greatest generosity is non-attachment.
The greatest goodness is a peaceful mind.
The greatest patience is humility.
The greatest effort is not concerned with results.
The greatest meditation is a mind that lets go.
The greatest wisdom is seeing through appearances.

Atisha (11th century Tibetan Buddhist master)
