In a hilltop cemetery in Sedona Arizona I discovered a large white statute of Buddha watching over the resting place of a long time resident.
I thought it fitting and appropriate to place Sidd the Travelin Buddha with this Serene emanation of Siddhartha aka Buddha as they both are tranquil and peaceful in their demeanor. The gorgeous background provides a perfect setting for these two subjects representing all that is good and right.

Better is the gain of Entering the Stream than sole sovereignty over the earth, than to rule supreme over the entire universe.

Dhammapada (Words of Wisdom) #178

What this tells us is that it is profoundly much more advantageous to seek the truth, to endeavor to tread the path towards betterment than to rule over anything.

    Really like the POV and composition here, Steven. Frames the Bhudda as contemplating his natural, beautiful surround, while being grounded in earth.

    You have really got it going in this one, Wig. That sliver of red sandstone is the perfect complement.
