Prince Siddhartha Gautama (Gautama Buddha) wit...


















I am a block of stone,

in the process of being,

carved by Dharmic hands,

Bodhisattvas and Buddhas create,

the future potential, to be.


I am not that of marble,

Cold, flashy and fragile,

nor that of sandstone,

easy to carve, easy to crumble,

neither am I flint stone,

hard, impenetrable, unyielding.

I am just good old stone –

nothing special.


The Buddhas and Bodhisattvas,

Carve my features,

Chip by grain,

they shape my,

future form.


I can,
