Buddha Christmas Cookie 2018

Hello Everyone,

Here is my Buddha Christmas cookie for 2018:

Reverend Dukkha Hanamoku’s Buddha Christmas Cookie for 2018.

The intricate triangular design towards the bottom of the Buddha above is my not-so-good attempt at a Fano Plane. It’s a neat structure with seven points – very symbolic of the seven days of meditation. Just above the 2018 is Venus. I think I at least got the saffron color of the robe pretty close.

Below are the seven Bodhisattva cookies for 2018:

Seven Bodhisattvas. Mrs. Hanamoku and I split one for each of the seven days prior to Christmas.

The yellow one at about “3:30” could be a bunny faced upwards. But I like to think of it more as a duckling – see the beak on the upper-right and with at the upper-left.

Here is a huge crossed dorje cookie, an important symbol of the Shingon sect I grew up in:

This is a huge dorje cookie. Notice the enso with Venus inside. The pi symbolizes relationships hidden in the enso.
