Fierce Bodhissatvas

Buddhism on it’s surface can have visual associations that may not be understood. When Western explorers first found the forms of the fierce Bodhissatvas of compassion they believed them to be demonic. Nothing could be further from their realities. It’s a way to visualize the passion sometimes required to passionately and resolutely defend peace and love. Here are a few readings on the subject, one from Thich Nhat Hahn, and one from a journal that describes one of these historical and symbolic Bodhissatvas. I spent two months in Bodhissatva practice, and it still serves as source of insight to this day. Wishing everyone a peaceful day this morning, as I begin to search for publishers this week. Wish me luck. 🙂
