YORIK

The Crew through Buddhist Metaphoricals
Thursday, May 4, 2006

Metaphors, a cool thing to read when studying Buddhism. I thought it'd be worth a shot.

The Crew in Buddhist Metaphors

Malcolm Reynolds: A murky pond undisturbed by the stone, yet the stone still sinks and forever rests at the bottom.

Zoƫ Washburn: A guiding path in the forest, beaten and trodden, yet encompassed by beauty.

Jayne Cobb: A boulder resting at the base of a mountain, bruised and broken, yet still solid and a fine foothold.

Kaywinnit Frye: A bird in the sky, light and fragile, yet still instinctively singing and batting its wings endlessly.

Hoban Washburn: A burning flame fed by the love of the kindling, yet somber as it offers as warmth and serves as a beacon of hope.

Derrial Book: A quiet storm, having indefinite power, yet serving as a calm for the weak at heart.

Simon Tam: The tranquil ape, alertly watching over its kin, yet tending to others in times of danger.

River Tam: A tempest, chased and hunted by some, yet expressing power and providing all with splendor and hidden wisdom.

Inara Serra: A red rose, jagged at its foundation, yet standing admired and gleaming with lasting beauty.

"Hoban Washburn: A burning flame fed by the love of the kindling, yet somber as it offers as warmth and serves as a beacon of hope."

I'm going to put this in my signature.

Wow... Shiney!!! Very nice original idea :) they all fit very VERY well, almost as if dear old Buddha wrote them for our BDH :)

Wow! This is a really novel contribution. It was definitely worth a shot. All the descriptions of the BDH's are beautifully written and spot on.

Excellent work Yorik. 10/10!
