Buddhist quiz show
« on: January 19, 2012, 04:09:03 PM »
If you were a Buddhist teacher, how would you answer it??????????????????????????????????????????????????

Q: We just finished a retreat up at the monastery. The other day I was looking up at the altar and I saw something very strange. I noticed that the statue on the altar is Kwan Seum Bosal. But then I looked up and I saw that the painting behind Kwan Seum Bosal also has Kwan Seum Bosal in it. And the Kwan Seum Bosal in the painting is bowing. So, what I don?t understand is, how can Kwan Seum Bosal be bowing to Kwan Seum Bosal?
Buddhist teacher: You already understand.
Q:So, I ask you.
Buddhist teacher: ?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
Q: Thank you. Kwan Seum Bosal.

Nice one!  The answer is about the same as "What is the sound of a one handed clap?"  A painting or an image is only that.  I am sure that the person who positioned the items did not even consider bowing or not bowing and only shows that Kwan Seum Bosal in a different mode.  Since she is the Goddess of Compassion and Healing I am sure that she can be found in many different poses.
