The Complete Buddha’s Face Blog Index

July 2011 Part 4


I work on creating articles for the blog on an almost hourly basis and my mind goes on a free-though word association, I Google images and you tube videos to see if I can fine an alternative angle on Buddhism that I haven’t explored before. It is an engrossing and almost meditative process which leads me to stumbling on all sorts of amazing information. The article about the largest solid gold Buddha statue in the world is the most popular of this particular bunch.
