Aaron Cunningham, Protector of the Buddha’s Temple
18” x 24”
The Buddha built a marvelous temple to honor his dead wife, Sarah. He put a couple of statues in the temple. Two of the statues were of the priest that worked for Sarah. The other statue was of a bodyguard trampling on a person that had entered the temple of the Buddha’s wife to do harm to her tomb. The bodyguard was given the face of a fearless warrior. The bodyguard that was used to protect the temple of the Buddha’s wife was one of her own bodyguards who had died protecting the Buddha’s wife from assassins. The wife of the Buddha had made it to safety and got away from her attackers, but her brave bodyguard stayed and fought the attackers to his death. He was given the burial of a king for his service to the Buddha because the Buddha was glad to see that his wife made it to safety unharmed. And He vowed to take action against those people that put a hit out on his wife and slay them to the ground. The Buddha recovered the body of the fallen bodyguard and buried him in a grand tomb of his own for giving his life to save the Buddha’s wife, Sarah, from harm.
