Small Things#18 – Here is why Buddha carried light on his head!

After observing this painting of the Buddha, which I had painted in 2014, the Little One asked – Do you know why Gautam Buddha carried light around his head? I shrugged and asked – Do you know?

“Ah, yes! He carried light on his head to see better at night while walking. And also because, this was his style,” he answered expertly. The answer left me in splits. What perspective!

  1. Hahaha! I think that makes perfect sense! What adorable children you have, Shivangi. The app I have that enables me to see comments to me has been disabled by WordPress and I no longer am able to get my comments in case you comment to me. I just wanted you to know.
