BEAUTIFUL BUDDHIST BLING










































BEDAZZLED BY BEAUTIFUL BUDDHIST BLING
Sorry, sorry, sorry,realising that prhaps the whole saffron and gold thing may be a trifle cliche, I am still going to share these snaps of some of the golden beauty seen in and around Budddhist wats, chedis, shrines, altars and offerings
Although not my first trip to a predominantly Buddhist society, and knowing these are the types of things I would see, nevertheless, the sheer loveliness and awesome  holy magical power of gold is still mighty 
gorgeous in its purity and perfection.

On me gold looks garish and gaudy,and I have been known to be snide about its vulgarity. But somehow...in this settting, it is the only thing that would be right. 
Beautiful Buddhist bling. Bedazzled again.
