Dear Lady yawares,

This is a very beautiful collection indeed! I especially like your Medicine Buddha. Though I practice pretty much an exclusive Theravada tradition these days, I have a special place in my heart for the absolutely beautiful iconography of the Mahayana tradition.

I should say, also, I've been rather absent here of late...I've asked myself "should I play on Dhamma Wheel, or should I meditate?" Of late, I've been making the right decision, hence my general absence from here. However, I saw your post and your lovely Buddha collection and had to say hello.

Much metta to you and yours,

I much prefer "the lady" to "the monster", so I shall take "the lady's" advice and play more and also join Dharma Wheel!

Thank you again for these lovely photos...so inspiring! Unfortunately, I doubt I will be able to visit all of them in one lifetime, so it is good we have this modern technology to experience them, no?

Oh, I just noticed the little bats flying above the thousand-pettled lotus...love that!

Metta,

Hello official birthday greeter! I still am yet to join Dharma Wheel, but it's only because I am lazy (there, I said it!) But I can type my birthday for you, September 20!

But, I promise, this weekend I will join for sure.

Carved Nephrite Buddha

Nephrite is a variety of the calcium and magnesium-rich amphibole mineral actinolite. It is one of two different mineral species called jade. The other mineral species known as jade is jadeite, which is a variety of pyroxene. While nephrite jade possess mainly grays and greens (and occasionally yellows, browns or whites), jadeite jade, which is rarer, can also contain blacks, reds, pinks and violets. Nephrite jade is an ornamental stone, used in carvings, beads, or cabochon cut gemstones.

Nephrite can be found in a translucent white to very light yellow, brown,grey. Canada is the principal source of modern lapidary nephrite. Nephrite jade was used mostly in pre-1800 China as well as in New Zealand, the Pacific Coast and Atlantic Coasts of North America, Neolithic Europe, and southeast Asia.
