“Once again, we are reminded that awakening, or enlightenment is not the property of Buddhism, any more than Truth is the property of Christianity. Neither the Buddha nor the Christ belongs exclusively to the communities that were founded in their names. They belong to all people of goodwill, all who are attentive to the secret which lives in the depths of their breath and their consciousness." ~Jean-Yves Leloup ..*
Dunhuang - A superb example of a smiling ("Early Greek") Central Asian Buddha. At his broken knee one can see the straw and wood with which Central Asian clay statues are filled. Buddha Maitreya, Cave 259, Northern Wei, around 470 AD.
