All I want for Christmas is...
...a giant carved mango-wood, $5,000 (AU) Buddha head. I’m easy to buy for, really. I’ve had my eye on him for years, from way back when the exchange rate was in our favor. The photo does not do him justice.
Being more practical (and way low on funds), and realizing, ironically, the Buddha’s teaching that desire brings suffering, I will content myself with a photo.
And maybe one of these lesser priced Buddhas.
Or, more realistically, Sarabelle’s water jug Easter Island heads.
Learn to let go. That is the key to happiness.
-- Siddhartha Gautama
