There Is Space Left

All around this tree on four sides are these little cubicles each with a golden Buddha. There are some empty spaces waiting to be claimed. Those who come to worship put flowers in front of their favorite.
This couple carried clay pots and passed round and round the little square of Buddhas sprinkling water.

Inside the temple is the history of many Buddhas and their accomplishments. The first step on their trail of progression is to walk out on their wife, children and parents. From day one they turn their back on everything dear.

Being peaceful is a wonderful state but one day

All the fame of being remembered on the walls of the temple will count for little when they realize that their families are lost to them forever.
