Buddha on a keyring

16th July 2009

I am reminded of a poem on Gautam Buddha by Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan discussing how all the learnings of Buddha has been ignored. He felt beauty was not important so he shaved his head, to make him beautiful, his followers gave him curly hair in his pictures and statues. He was against worshipping idols and the world made him an idol. "You've gat it all wrong" is what Buddha must be feeling. It is like opening a valuable package and throwing away what was in it and preserving the wrapper.
