I have never read Jeff Greenwald book, “ Shopping for Buddhas”, but upon reading an inside cover quote that says to some extent, ‘ that shopping for Buddha's is real suffering’.
I totally agree.
I’ve been shopping for a single buddha for about 6 weeks now. It is for a project .
I’ve called all my many resources and then some , I get in the car, I drive to the stores, I take copious photographs and measurements and then submit the images to my client.
Nothing has struck my clients inner Buddha.
I am now experiencing real suffering.
I’m not going to go on about how I have suggested to this client that they go in search for her own Buddha. Not what they want. Time is a great consideration . I get it.
So I suffer.
I am a beginners mind in Zen Buddhism .
I’m not sure that I like this suffering stuff too much.
