Statues of the Buddha have provided inspiration for devotees throughout the ages. It was in Singapore where I first realized and focused on the astonishing beauty of Buddha depictions. The Asian Civilizations Museum in Singapore has a wonderful collection of Buddhas, presented in an elegant and historically informative manner.
What is it about these statues of Buddha that is so compelling? Does the Buddha remind us that although life is challenging in so many ways, we can find peace in our own solitude?
