Khon Kaen Buddha (Wednesday Photo)

Michael Babcock, June 30th, 2010

Buddha Image in NE Thailand

Green Buddha Statue

Buddha statue from Khon Kaen

Kasma took this picture of a Buddha statue at Wat That, the first temple by the lake by Beung Kaen Nakhon in Khon Kaen Province in Northeastern Thailand.

I like that there are so many different types of Buddha statues in Thailand: it’s almost as if there’s one for everyone. The diversity is a reminder to me to not get too tied up in appearances: each different image is a pointer to the same teaching, the same dhamma.

    Nice shot. I love going to the numerous temples in northeastern Thailand and taking photos. Thanks for sharing.

    Excellent photo of the Buddha statue. I love going to the Thai temples and my favorite is wat Nong Wang in Khon Kaen. I always take first time visitors to Khon Kaen to see this beautful 9-story temple. The little kids that act as tour guides to improve their language are great.
