The London Peace Pagoda.

By Chinga
The London Peace Pagoda. It's in Battersea Park. No need to travel too far... The Peace Pagoda was presented to Londoners by the Venerable Nichidatsu Fuji (affectionately nicknamed ¬‘Guruji¬’ by his close friend Mahatma Gandhi) in 1984. Founder of the Japanese Buddhist movement, Nipponzan Myohoji, Guruji stated that 'Civilisation is not to kill human beings, not to destroy things, nor make war; civilisation is to hold mutual affection and to respect one another'. A beautiful Pagoda, well worth a visit.
Thank you for your votes yesterday and to Jeff (Kojack), Dave (HobbitDave), Tim (TimothyDMorton), Alan (Af1), Val (Val Prowse), Ray (ThePixelator), Mike (MikeGillingham), Rich (Woodini254), Jim (Boov), and Walt (Waltnox), who kindly awarded the set.
Thank you all, Isabel GrinGrin

V3 for me as well. I find it interesting how different cultures portray Buddha. I am most familiar with the Sri Lankan concept where he is very slim and trim and quite young.. Excellent set.

fascinating set Isabel. I like the Buddha ones.
There is a similar Peace Pagoda in Milton Keynes near one of the lakes created to help land drainage.

Lovely set Isabel. The London pagoda is decidedly more decorative
than the one in Birmingham.
