Christmas Buddha

Santa-buddha

I just thought I’d share this photo from a Christmas party with my folks and rellos last weekend. They were a bit short on mangers and raindeers obviously. I’m not sure who co-opted the enlightened one but in any case he seemed oblivious to the proceedings. I’m thinking it needs an engrish caption.

  1. This is a blasphemy and and insult to God. A Christian person would never have this kind of thing in his/her home. We must remember that real meaning of Christmas is to remember the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ and nothing else. God bless

  2. This is true, I would never allow it in my home, but then, it wasn’t my home. Like many Australians, many within my family don’t share my messianic convictions.
    Having some familiarity with Buddhism I doubt this appropriation of Buddha would have been celebrated by too many Buddhists either. It illustrates the laid back, mix n match, Jesus and whatever approach that many Australians have to spirituality. How to communicate Christ and what he was really on about at Christmas. This is the challenge.
