The scared cow 惊牛 ...



Although I barely understand the symbol 
of the cow being holy or sacred in the 
Hindu religion, I respect that belief
...
That tolerance is important in our society
of multi-racial and multi-religion 
...

tolerance of other beliefs and religions in this world today is a must...we're all just a plane trip away from each other and to be intolerant mostly leads to war

I like the design of these little lamps...it appears the wick is placed in the indentation in the side and floats out into the oil in the bowl. Curious, what oil is used and does the wick just continue to lay in the indentation and burn?

I agree, tolerance of other religions and cultures a must, in today's society.
This shot took my breath away, I literally felt the warmth of the oil light.
Splendidly done !

All these different religions are facinating. When we travel and that a lot, we always try to see news things and religion is always interesting.

Greetings,

It's that tolerance that is missing in the heart and soul of many believers. Unfortunately...
Your respect is exactly what your photo shows. Difficult, I think. Very good.

I love your attitude towards other cultures and their ways. I believe that we all have our own beliefs and who is to say what is right or what is wrong? I know that I've changed my mind as I've aged, if I was right in the first place does this mean that I'm now condemned? I sure hope not! lol Tolerance is a good thing in my opinion... I'm working on mine daily.

Your photo is interesting, I like how the cow is out of focus yet the candles are clearly visible. Well done once again Wong!

Enjoy your day.
