Bodh Gaya / 14

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 30 March 2014 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

As we came out twilight was falling and birds were getting ready to call it a day:)..and i was full of Buddha...
Yes in my school days I used to dislike Buddha so much..for leaving His young wife and son and go in search of truth..I used to argue that He was a coward to slip away in the night....
But as I became more mature i could see and feel His enlightenment..I understood Him.
.But what is the world coming to today...
so much violence every where.
Hope brotherhood and love encompasses the whole world.

Sam from Chennai, India

Wonderful capture of the tree and birds returning home for the night.
Very interesting words about Buddha and Enlightenment, Devi.
What a lovely statement. Excellent. :)

30 Mar 2014 5:56pm

@Sam: Thank you Sam :) I used to feel that the Prince Siddhartha frittered away a good chance of alleviating the sufferings of the people, as a wonderful compassionate was His way of life and one marvels at the quitting of luxurious living and seeking monk hood!!
