The same location as the Travelin Buddha in the parking lot, this image of Sidd places him resting on a picknick table near the Victory of Faith Community Garden.Alost all religions are built on faith- rather 'blind' faith it would seem. But in Buddhism emphasis is laid on 'seeing', knowing and understanding and not on faith or belief. In Buddhist text there is a word sraddha (sanskrit) which is usually translated as 'faith' or 'belief'. But sraddha is not 'faith' as such, but rather 'confidence born out of conviction. In popular Buddhism and also in ordinary usage the word sraddha, it must be admitted, has an element of 'faith' in the sense that it signifies devotion to the Buddha, or the Dhamma (Teaching) and the Sangha (The Order). The members of the Victory of Faith Community Garden at St Leo's Parish have plenty of faith, not only in their belief but that what they undertake in the gardening project will benefit themselves as well as others. And that is something that the Buddha would be proud of and want to support.
