Super Short Story (105): Accessory


Super Short Story (105): Accessory

Although the guy convicted in court wears a mala (Buddhist prayer beads),
it need not mean anything certain at all.
He could be wearing it just as an accessory,
or for misleading judgement of his character,
or as a real but lousy Buddhist,
or as a good an dmaligned Buddhist.

(In the Dharma-Ending Age, even Mara sends his followers to don monastic robes!)
