Inspiration Comes in Funny Places
P-San, Nara, Japan, 2008
In the temple housing the biggest wooden Buddha in the world, there is a pole with a hole at the bottom the size of Buddha's nostril. If you can fit through, you are supposed to find enlightenment. So basically, if you're a certain body shape, you will be enlightened, and if not, forget it. Lame. But, I really liked it. It's kinda scary--shoving yourself through this little tuna can and coming out the other end supposedly closer to happiness, but really just on the ground.
