The Power of a Buddha

THE POWER OF A BUDDHA

Even without making offerings, just looking at an image of the Buddha purifies our unsubdued mind and negative karma. Even if we are very angry and our mind is very disturbed and we go into the meditation room or whatever it is, and we just sit down and look at a nice painting or statue of Buddha, and we think about the way he is sitting—it is so relaxed, so peaceful, so subdued and compassionate-looking. If we just concentrate and think about that and look at the image, it is so helpful and so beneficial for our mind. It brings great calmness and it subdues our mind, as we generate the wish to be like that.
