IDOL

(I was buying some incense at an aromatherapy shop and wanted to see if they had a figurine of Avalokiteshvara to aid in my meditative practice. They didn’t, but the store would be getting new items in the coming weeks, the clerk told me, and took down my name and number. For the description of the item I wanted, she wrote the word “idol.” This made me sad. If I had asked for a figurine of the Virgin Mary or a crucifix, would it have received the description “idol” too? I’m guessing not.)

Images that represent
Deliverance from ignorance
Only serve to lead one to the
Love that shines from within.
