Tales Of Brave Ulysses

East of the Sun, West of the Moon

A votive figurine launched from Burma in mid December was propelled across the Indian Ocean unharmed, before being found by Indian fisherman from Tamil Nadu a month later.

The figurine, one of thousands launched every rainy season by Burmese Buddhists, was credited with saving the lives of all 980 inhabitants of the small village of Meyurkuppam. It was found afloat upon a bamboo raft with devotional candles and a few coins.

The ‘Buddha Swami’ was happily accepted into the Hindu village, and is enshrined beneath a large banyan tree.
