Where is your Avatar from? The cool mushroom man? He seems very peaceful and I find myself thinking about His mystery.

This is Gokō Shii Amida 五刧思惟阿弥陀 (aka Hōzō Bosatsu). and this statue is located outside of konkai komyoji temple in Kyoto Japan.
Here are the original pics I took https://photos.app.goo.gl/s8eW3BbkhGtCHW118
We normally go back to Japan each year to see family but were unable last year and are not sure we can this year. But if you do get a chance to visit Kyoto you can see this statue just outside the cemetery.

Goko = Five Kalpas (a very very very very very long time)
Shii = to meditate or contemplate

The Afro is to demonstrate that a long time has passed. Long enough to allow for the hair to grow so long.
Bodhisattva Dharmakara contemplated the vows for five kalpas.
Five Kalpas of reflection. Wow.. just wow!

I can't sit for more than five hours!

Thanks for showing interest. I really like this image and use it quite a lot. Feel free to use the photos in google photo link.

Keep happy and healthy :)

That's an interesting and unique depiction of Amida Buddha! I haven't seen the kalpas of contemplation of the Vows represented by long hair before, very cool :smile: Thanks for sharing.
