Buddha shaped candles banned

The South Wales Argus quoted Lama Sh-zr as a local Buddhist authority in an article on a controversy over Buddha-shaped candles.

Quote:

Shezer Khandro, an ordained practitioner from Caldicot, said although she did not make a complaint about the candles, she understands why they could cause offence.

It would not be something I would have in my house, she said. "I revere the Buddha as an enlightened being.

I can see why people would find it offensive. I wouldnt chose to burn the Buddha.
