I've become very interested in Buddhism lately. Although I can't picture myself ever becoming a Buddha or a Dalai anytime in the near future, I really like what it's all about and I am trying to incorporate some of the concepts into my daily life. In a nutshell, Buddhism shows you how you can find true and eternal happiness within yourself instead of relying on other people or situations to make it for you. Considering I've always been an independent person (sometimes to a fault), this sounds amazing to me and I plan on doing a lot more research on it.
Even before I knew anything at all about Buddhism, I enjoyed looking at photos of Buddhist themes because they are usually very peaceful and calming. I decided to paint my own peaceful and calming picture on this week's plate! I love the quote too. I'm hoping it eventually gives me the courage I need to set myself free.
This plate was made with Duncan® Pure Brilliance® clear glaze, EZ Strokes®, Courtyards Glaze™ and Concepts®.
