The Buddha’s spiritual responses, power, wisdom, and compassion are everywhere. As we read the sutras, practice the Buddhadharma, and benefit from the Dharma, we then have seen the Buddha. The Buddha exists everywhere; it’s not as if the Buddha is only in Buddha images or statues. The image or statue is not the Buddha; we worship Buddha images or statues so as to invoke our faith and develop our aspiration to emulate the Buddha.
