Here we have a few more temple guardians in Bangkok.
This is an even larger version of Yaksha, a fierce but benevolent nature spirit. He is charged with taking care of precious things.
This is another version of their stylized lion, called shishi in China, which are thought to have magical powers to repel evil spirts.
Our lives appear so busy that we find it necessary to carve time out for ourselves. But if time is a river, how do you carve water out of a flowing stream? Once you have removed the water from a river, it truly is no longer a river. Just a few drops of water.
I believe you have to put yourself into the flow of the river instead and do the things that must be done to become human. Carving time becomes a travesty.
