Glow, Little Buddha, Glimmer, Glimmer


Turquoisemoon over at Daily Om made this beautiful terrarium with a lovely Buddha statue in it. There's a battery-operated tea light in Buddha's begging bowl. Neat, eh?

This made me think of MY illuminated Buddha which is plugged into the cigarette lighter of my car. He glows with a serene blue light and keeps my vehicle safe. But this photo doesn't really do him justice cuz he's kinda hard to see, due to the glowing and all.


There . . . is that better?

I have never seen a plug in glow in the dark Buddha before. Well... there ya go. Where in the world did you find one like that? I do love the terrarium. I'm working on putting lovely greenery in my house and that's a beautiful idea.

Bright blessings,
Bird

LOL! You'll be happy to hear the Easter Bunny made an early stop here and brought me a baby Buddha Monk asleep on the back of an elephant. Right now I'm just enjoying the smiles ... one day I'll photograph and share. Keep those Buddhas glowing!

not sure about Buddha, but the Goddess approves.

laughingwolf said...

lol

my buddha stands, arms upraised holding a ball[?] in each open palm, between my little pooh bear and wee tigger, top shelf of a small bookcase ;)

Riot Kitty said...

That is awesome! Without the alien he looks like a middle finger flipping someone off, which is even cooler.

Jim said...

Much better! So versatile!
