What if…

What if Buddha had been born into today’s English Royal Family? Which member of that family would he have chosen to be? Which sport would he have played, polo, cricket and rugby? or football? How would he have handled the mean-spirited English press? He would be brought up in the Anglican Church, so what would Buddhadharma look like with a Christian background instead of a Hindu one? Who would he have married? He would be driven by a chauffer in a Rolls Royce, not a charioteer in a chariot. Where on earth would he find his spiritual companions? And how would he cope with English weather?

This beautiful Buddha is from a postcard my mother-in-law bought in Varanasi. Photographer unknown.
