Lucky Buddha Beer – Artistic Creative Re-Description

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.

LUCKY BUDDHA

I engaged in some skillful re-description turning intoxicant containers into  bottles of dharma.  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.

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.  They are each unique.

$20 plus shipping.  Email v.wayne.hughes@gmail.com if interested.
