Greetings to all,
In Engaged Dharma the ideal of creative re-description often meets reality. This particular reality is that images of the Buddha are used to sell material goods, in this case it is Lucky Buddha Beer. Creative re-description arising from a Buddhist ideal and imagination.
Paint the image of the Buddha, put a mixture of lemon balm and mint, grown in my own herb garden, dried and mixed by me into the bottle and each one is on the way to creative re-description.
Then glue a card to the back with this dharani on it: May this home bring peace and prosperity to all those who enter. May all who enter experience compassion, acceptance and generosity within. May this home be a refuge to family, friends and strangers alike. Sva Ha 🙂 Spray with polyurethane sealer and fit a cork into the neck.
It becomes a ‘home blessing bottle’. Take it home, pull the cork, sprinkle the herbs while reading aloud the dharani.
I bow with respect,
