My Dear friends,
After my very sad and shocking post re animal cruelty yesterday, I felt the need to bring us back to some peace and tranquility, so i’m continuing my walk with you through the gardens surrounding Leshan Temple and the largest Buddha in the world ‘Dafo’.
These statues and carvings bring me to a calm state of mind as soon as i see them, it’s like walking into a temple, a Church, a Cathedral, a Synagog or a Mosque, these wonderful places of worship are also filled with stunning artworks from ‘God, our creator’ and they are placed all around the world to bring us back to the ‘NOW’, to re-focus our minds to the beauty this world has to offer, to give us time to re-think and to help us focus on what is important in our lives.
I’m truely sorry if my post shocked you yesterday but it is part of this crazy world we live in and it’s people like us who can make a difference, we can stop cruelty, we can bring peace to this world… if we work ‘Together’!
I do hope you enjoy these images and meditate a little today, re-focus your mind and be at peace with the world!
We have to ask ourselves why we humans inflict pain on others. Glad in a way I missed that posting come into my email. Here in the UK someone for some reason thought they would cut off newborn lambs ears!! What is wrong with some wicked people in this world Mark!?
So thank you for the PEACE of your continued walk

Namaste my friend 🙂
The statues are so beautiful. I wonder under what culture were these statues carved. Unlike the “Da Fo” which looks “Chinese”, they look South Asian to me.
The statue in the last photo reminds me of the carvings of early Hindu Kingdoms in Indonesia. (Hinduism is the first religion known by the native Indonesians)
It is very interesting, i would guess its a story of Buddhism showing the roots back to India. Many of these statues do look Thai, Burmese, Cambodian and some Hindu. I kust love the variety, brings me extra peace 🙂
And the green moss! I love how they colorize the reddish stone underneath!
It is so beautiful. Thanks Hari 🙂
Sometimes real and shocking make us appreciate real and beautiful even more. XO
That’s so so true my friend 🙂
Stunning images and colours, thank you
You are very welcome 🙂
