Buddha was facing the wife and kids he abandoned, and he could not bear the sight.

It’s a warning from your wife about your fondness for Mac burgers.

The See No Evil Buddha, known as ‘Mizaru’ in Japanese, is depicted with his hands over his eyes.
It is a buddha, but it is not the Buddha (Siddhartha).

thats awesome. my mum gave me one of those 🙂 its funny because she was saying it was ashamed, or that he saw some one naked haha

Greed is a disease that brings shame on the greedy with conscience.
Unfortunately most of the greedy do not have conscience.
That is why our world is having economic collapse with Extreme capitalism threatening to bring down our world.

I have one as well. It attracted me because I recognize that what we see (perceive) as reality is often deceptive. It is only through inner wisdom that we “see” truth.
