Have Yourself a Mindful Little Christmas
Who says Buddhists can't celebrate Christmas? Don a Santa cap and trim your saffron robes with white fur cuffs and you're right in the spirit of the season. This glass ornament is 4-1/4" (10.8 cm) tall.
Are you curious...?
People of any faith or no faith at all observe Christmas as a secular holiday, but Buddhists can even justify celebrating its traditional Christian version. Many Buddhists believe that Jesus was a high Bodhisatva, or manifestation of Enlightenment. Some Christians believe that the young Jesus traveled to the East and picked up all the peace and love stuff from Buddhism. Many Chinese and Japanese portray their "Laughing Buddha" distributing presents to children out of a bottomless sack. So there you have it: Santa could be a Buddhist monk. Why not? "Peace on Earth" is a harmless enough philosophy for all faiths to share.
