GOLD ON A BUDDHA – 湘莲子

HOW TO STICK GOLD ON A BUDDHA IN THAILAND

Dodging the rain to get into the temple,
an attendant hands me a small piece of
gold foil.
I think this is like in the shopping centres;
they hand you a discount sticker at the entrance,
so I stick the gold foil next to my heart.

“You cannot stick gold on yourself!”

I am reminded,
you have to stick gold on the Buddha.
Wherever something is wrong,
where you don’t feel well,
you put the gold on that part of the Buddha,
and pray for protection.

So I take the foil from my chest
to rub it on him at the same spot.
