A quick PSA, because working in a New Age store I realize a lot of people don’t know this.  Keep in mind this is the simple version.

The fella on the left-hand side, that’s Gautama Buddha, the Buddha, the central figure in Buddhism.  Note that he is not considered a god, but a teacher and spiritual leader, the first to attain Enlightenment in his era.  Note also how thin he is.  This is because the Buddha fasted a lot.  He was born Siddhartha Gautama.  Buddha is a title, and not actually his name.

The fella on the right-hand side is not Buddha.  This is a common misconception in the West.  That is Hotai (or Budai or Hotei depending on the language), a Buddhist monk from China and folkloric hero.  Hotai is thought by many to be a Buddha, but he is not the Buddha.  Unlike Buddha, Hotai actually is revered as a god in Chinese folklore, although not in Buddhist practice.

This post is based on things I’ve been taught by my Buddhist coworker but if I forgot or mixed up something important and you are Buddhist and you notice, please let me know.

This has been an informational post.  Have a nice day.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD EVERYONE READ THIS. READ IT. LEARN IT. PREACH IT.

I AM SO TIRED OF EVERYONE BELIEVING THIS MISCONCEPTION.

A word about bronies.

So I just got back last night from a brony convention in San Francisco. I was working a booth for a vendor friend, and let me tell you what happened:

We met a little girl who was there with her family. She got a button drawn at our booth, told us all about her favorite…

This is sad as fuck. The show is freaking awesome, for soooo many reasons. And im really frustrated to see that this is what people outside of the fandom see. The fandom its actually great too, Ive seen so many good ART made by grown-up people: music, comics, games, etc. They (we?) are people who really love the show and make great things out of it. And its really lovely to see men of all ages enjoying something made clasically for girls. 

So its depresing to see how one sick bastard can ruin everything. Cloppers are different, i cant see something specially awfull about them, after watching porn with dead people and other lovely stuff. But yeah, it is bad when you are exposing young children to explicit content. I would hate to see that any of y sisters or young cousins find the sexual fanart that ive seen. I dont really feel pony porn its bad by itself (not more that general furry porn), but if you dont have care to hide it from children, thats problematic.

But pleaseeeee dont think that bronie fandom is like that because of this one dude. Its like saying like death metal is murder because of that man who killed someone and who happened to listen to death metal. That pedophile was what he was NO MATTER which fandom he liked.

Rant end :c
