avalokitesvaraDhammic Socialism:

a Buddhist response to social suffering

In the Bodhisatva Avalokitesvara's face one discovers the virtues of parisuddhi (purity), mett (loving kindness), pa (wisdom), and khanti (patient endurance). These qualities are required by all who would mindfully & lovingly work-live for the elimination of all forms of suffering in this world.

(The original of this bust was found near Suan Mokkh and is now in the National Museum in Bangkok. It is a product of the Sri Vijaya Empire which flourished here 1200 years ago.)
