The Buddha's Thought for the Coming Week~
Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conductive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. --The Buddha
About the photo: I took this pic in Spring of '08 right after my MI. These statues were not painted for the longest time. All the statues at this Temple have been created and painted by the monks. It is really something to see.
