As I was driving little N to a birthday party at a local skating rink, she and I suddenly saw this giant Buddha statue in the backyard of what appeared to be a residence. Turns out it’s not a residence. The sign on the property reads “New Jersey Buddhist Vihara”. We have seen this statue several years back. I recall being just as impressed by it back then as I was on saturday. Somehow, just totally forgot about it with the passage of time.
So. It was such a pleasure to suddenly see it again! Don’t know why all things Buddhist give me so much joy. Surely, I must have had some serious connections to the Buddha in a past life.
Oooh, maybe I was a little Bodhisattava? 😉
