Image
Born, become, arisen – made, prepared, short-lived
Bonded by decay and death – a nest for sickness, perishable
Produced by seeking nutriment – not fit to take delight in


Departure from this is peaceful – beyond reasoning and enduring
Unborn, unarisen – free from sorrow and stain
Ceasing of all factors of suffering – stilling of all preparations is bliss

16. 'In what has the world originated?' — so said the Yakkha Hemavata, — 'with what is the world intimate? by what is the world afflicted, after having grasped at what?' (167)

17. 'In six the world has originated, O Hemavata,' — so said Bhagavat, — 'with six it is intimate, by six the world is afflicted, after having grasped at six.' (168)

Hi

Different images relevant to Buddha are widely developed and accepted within the Buddhist traditions and beyond. These image worships, symbolising Buddha or Buddhist practices, are also regarded as idol worships by some other religions.

Possibly certain writing/words can be used in Buddhist shrine/altar to replace symbolic Buddha images for devotional practice; e.g. these words: Namo tassa bhagavato arahato sammāsambuddhassa; or others.

Any suggestions? :thinking:
