Wherefore Art Thou, Buddha?

Frozen Memories

Buddha Decapitated Buddha Decapitated

This is one of the four Buddhas at Vatadage.

One thing that arouses every fiber of my being into anger is to see ancient works of art destroyed at the hands of humans. In my mind, it is only those of limited vision, those of small minds and no heart that would destroy these works of art particularly when it’s done for religious reasons. If you don’t believe in a god then it can’t hurt you. If it can hurt your faith then your faith is suspect at best.

I can accept that, with time, entropy occurs and all things decay. Entropy is a law of physics and, in the end, always wins. I am thankful for those governments that do protect and restore these wonders of the human condition.
