So, armed with my first digital camera (back in 1995), I decided to create my own handbook on Japanese Buddhism (with the help of my scanner as well). As I try to understand and categorize, the topic keeps expanding. But along the way, l hope we can both -- you the reader and me the digger -- find joy and insight.
Maybe one day I’ll finally have the “perfect” handbook, but for that to happen, I’ll need to keep digging deeper into the vast terrain of Buddhist art, faith, mythology, and superstition. (our sister estore selling Buddhist statuary)is a member of the above Web Ring. Most sell goods from Tibet and India, while Buddhist-Artworkfeatures Buddha statues from Japan.
