Buddha Garden

You are the community now. Be a lamp for yourselves. Be your own refuge. Seek for no other. All things must pass. Strive on diligently. Don’t give up.
~ Gautama Buddha

I have a neighbor with a beautiful garden. She has Buddha's placed throughout. If you ask her about her Buddha's, she will tell you that she's not a Buddhist, she just likes the statutes.

I have many friends like this. They love the calmness and serenity of Buddha statutes, they just aren't Buddhists. Maybe this is how it works, you don't need to be a Buddhist to find the peace of Buddha.
