No better marketing ...!

Marketing, it seems that everything has becoming crazier to pull your attention to buy  things that you don't actually need. Ever more inventive methods are used to  ensure that you “need” the products, the power is in fact,  the repetition, that you can’t go around and miss commercials. Billboards, moving texts or glowing leds. And especially ' screaming ' voices. “ You think I am crazy? ” ...?

Attract attention, attract attention and attract attention. Deliberately distracting you  from those matters where you actually would like to pay more attention to. Do you actually still know  what you wanted to do or what you were doing?

Just as you in the West (and to be honest also increasingly in the East) stumble over  the commercials. So you’re stumbling here over  temples and Buddha statues. Sometimes you can’t see the Buddha’s through the Buddha’s any more. There isn’t a better marketing, you might say.

However, this marketing, with the strength of repetition, is something completely different. These Buddha’s call for silence, intensification , rest, serenity and give some thought to what you are doing just this very moment.

Without screaming they call on to experience that you're not crazy at all and there is so much to find in yourself.
