One of the local "pets"

Chung Tai Monastery- below:

Pink Buddha in Chung Tai


Interesting facts about Bhudda statues:

  • The earlobes are elongated, partly to indicate the Buddha is all-hearing and partly as a reminder of the heavy earrings that weighed them down before Siddhartha renounced material things to seek enlightenment.
  • The Buddha's head is usually enlarged (sometimes by a large bump on top) to symbolize wisdom; a jewel in the bump denotes brilliance.
  • The hair is generally curly. According to legend, after shearing off his long princely locks, Siddhartha from then on had a head of short, fine curls — not a common look in Asia and thus a distinguishing sign.
  • A dot or protrusion in the center of the forehead represents power or an all-seeing eye.
  • The fingers are long, slender, and usually finely webbed to indicate that the Buddha can "catch" people, similar to the Christian idea of Jesus the fisherman. Webbing also has the practical advantage of making the statue's delicate fingers less likely to break off.
  • Often a stylized representation of light emanates from the Buddha, akin to a halo but usually encircling the entire body.
  • In both Chinese and Buddhist cultures, long earlobes are equated with longevity.

    Feedback/testimonial from some of our guests:

Hi Eddie,
Thanks for all, we enjoyed our itenary a lot, especially the snorkeling on
green island was amazing! The hotels you booked for us in Hualien and
Taitung were fantastic as well and taroko gorge was beautiful and all the
connections were arranged prefectly so we didn't need to worry about
anything!

cheers,
Maaike
