O Buddhamas Tree, O Buddhamas Tree!

Buddha Ornament by Z Gallerie
Religions experienced in other cultures are often syncretic, which is to say, they're a fusion of different belief systems: a spiritual mashup.

So imagine my surprise when I saw this Christmas ornament of the Buddha. The product description included the word "Zen," of course, which in English common usage connotes more an aesthetic than a religious practice.

Anyway, I thought this was kind of neat, and reflects our diverse cultural heritages.

Happy Friday!

Oh! And go buy some cards to send this winter from my Etsy shop, okay? Thanks!

Invite Beauty,

I.
