“Buddhas, Buddhas, Everywhere!”

We should be able to go into any art museum, look around and exclaim, “Buddhas, Buddhas, Everywhere!” Not just the paintings but, inspired by them, all the people.

It has been said of Emerson that he regarded every moment as Epiphanic. So he would have loved, would have felt loved, by any painting.

But we non-Emersons need the painter to have first painted as if he were a Buddha: through his meditation, he had found his Buddha-Nature, that we may find ours.
