Sidd the Travelin Buddha likes to relax in trees..This is the second such photo taken of Sidd during a recent excursion to small towns around Omaha Nebraska. These shots were taken at the Prospect Hill cemetary in Elkhorn Nebraska on May 5, 2010 Wednesday.I like this shot for the V shape in the tree in which the Buddha rests, the texture of the bark on the right and the absence of bark on the left, as well as the forest like area behind him that was littered with all sorts of stuff. The Buddha exists in All sentinent life forms and can be found anywhere as long as one has open eyes..as well as an open mind...The theory of karma should not be confused with so-called 'moral justice' or 'reward and punishment' . The idea of moral justice or reward and punishment, arises out of the conception of a supreme being, a God, who sits in judgement, who is a law-giver and who decides what is right and what is wrong. the term 'justice' is ambiguous and dangerous, and in its name more harm than good is done to humanity. The theory of karma is the theory of cause and effect, of action and reaction; it is a natural law, which has nothing to do with with the idea of justice or reward and punishment. Every Volitional action produces it's effects or results. If a good action produces good effects, and a bad action bad effects, it is not justice or reward or punishment meted out by anybody or any power sitting in judgement of your action, but this is a virtue of its own nature, its own law. This is not difficult to understand. But what is difficult is that, according to the karma theory, the effects of a volitional action may continue to manifest itself even in a life after death.
