Hello Treeleafers,

I don't know why I haven't presented this to you before, I did mention it, but didn't make a thread for it.

In July 2019, I've started the 10001 Buda project.

My goal is to draw and cut out by hand exactly 10001 Buda stickers. I would probably be better off writing sutras, but this serves a similar purpose. :)

I am sending these out for free to anyone willing to receive them and send me a photo of stickers in their cities. They can be applied in homes, gardens, your notebooks, or public places, wherever people feel some Buda power is needed :)

The idea is to make these stickers travel the world, to places I will probably never get a chance to visit. So far, stickers have made it to Germany, Italy, Croatia, Singapore, UK...

Please take a look at http://www.instagram.com/10001buda to get a glimpse of where Budas have been so far.

I am sending another batch of stickers by the end of May. If you would like to receive these, I would kindly ask of you to send me your address to 10001buda@gmail.com - please, do not leave it here or send it via PMs, since it's hard to organize all the shipments, I have a pretty good system out in the Gmail. Be sure to leave your Treeleaf name in Gmail as well. All I am asking for is for you to send me photos of stickers back once they're up.

The most commonly asked question is why the Buda's head resembles those from the movie Eggheads (people who didn't see the movie tend to compare it with a penis... probably tells a lot about my drawing skills) - basically, it's the same drawing style that I've started in 2019 with my now almost defunct web comic.

Thank you for your attention,

Sharan (SjeoDanas/SatToday)

Hi Sharan, beautiful!

We'd love the stickers to reach Ukraine as well. This would greatly complement the current project we run here.
I will write a PM to you shortly. Thank yougassho1

Greetings everyone,

Buda sticker packs have been sent your way. I would be more than happy to send some more, so make sure to follow instructions in my first post and request your own.

Ha, it is a hard one, Heitou, you are right :) I am using plain self-adhesive paper that is sometimes hard to separate. Yes, it is more difficult than your usual nylon stickers, but, when it starts peeling off, it gets easily washed away, doesn't leave stains and is ecologically sustainable in the way.

Hope everyone got theirs, and I will be eager to send some to anyone else. Can't wait to see photos!

I love this idea, Sharan. What a wonderful way to allow the Buddha to sit in cities the world over. Although I suppose this already occurs, I would still like to help.

I have sent you the email as requested.
