Both were in their respective uniforms, that is all.  Curiously though, the same colour.  What a coincidence....

It's not what is outside which is important.  What is inside (oneself) counts. But after a while, even that should disappear to give what is One (Om).  Am i quoting Laotze?

You should see the westerners holding jossticks and praying hard in some of the temples in China - what a dramatic change in world trends, perceptions about China, even.  Unity (of humanity) in diversity (of their activities).

Another strange thing - both the Buddha and Confucius had lived in different places but about the same epoch.  They couldn't have known about each other.  Yet the essence of their teachings seem to cohere.  Why?

Wax and wane, life.

I miss my old friend, caringhk.  This one is for him.

I dunno. I think you raise a good question. Would they dress that way if they visited the Pope in the Vatican? Somehow I think no, they wouldn't. I don't think it was a malicious act on their part. More likely ignorance - that Buddhism is so low on their awareness they didn't know how to act respectfully. OTOH, Buddhists wouldn't care. No harm, no foul.
