Amida Buddha

Some forms of Japanese Buddhism are rooted in the Mahayana, or Great Vehicle, school of belief. They regard Gautama, the Buddha of India, as only one of an almost endless sequence of Buddhas reaching back over an incomprehensible span of years. However, Amida Buddha is considered the Buddha yet to come; his invocation has been particularly important in Japan.

I found this amazing lamp on the second floor of Pear River Mart, on Broadway near Grand Street in downtown Manhattan. The price tag says $299.50, but it has 50% off sticker on it, so this is some kind of incredible bargain, if you ask me. If this seems like something you might want to own, I suggest you bring a friend with you, to help carry it to the street, because it probably weighs a few pounds.
