The Weeping Buddha …
It takes strength to come face to face with our own suffering and the suffering of the world.
The weeping Buddha, as seen in the picture, represents the power and strength of compassion, of connecting deeply to our own sorrows and the sorrows of the world. At times this burden is just too much and all of us , including the Buddha , and we can be brought to tears.

Your first line is great! It takes a lot of strength to really start looking into ones self and I think this was well written :)
Thank you so much! I have several of these Buddha’s at home… I’ve been drawn to them. It was rewarding to research the meaning. ;)
