    My mom literally writes in on boxes for storage... and then I started doing it as I got older and moved around... and the way we always spelled it was very, very wrong...

    "Chochkies."

    I wonder as a typical american consumer, who was not religious in any sense. Did all the commercialization of Zen and Buddhas lead me to find zazen and Treeleaf?

    It's a possibility, and in that sense, not really a bad thing. Just cause and effect.

    This discussion really changed my mind about a lot of things. In particular, I realized that I personally was too uptight about the way the Buddha is used and portrayed in pop culture. Most people, it seems, are perfectly fine with tiny driving Buddha buddies. Then we got into giant Buddhas and it all became rather humorous to me.

    Big. Little. Fat. Skinny. On a shopping bag or a t-shirt or smiling from my computer monitor next to a golden cat. Welcome, Buddha.

    Gassho,
