This tiny buddha is a feature of the Samuel Loewenberg monument located at Carrollton and St. Charles. The Buddha’s surroundings do not foster quiet contemplation. Derelicts hang out around a dry fountain behind it. A city bus often idles there, too, producing noise and fumes. There are boisterous bars to the left and right. And someday the streetcar will again make the turn from Carrollton to St. Charles in front of it.
Still, it’s nice to know that this diminutive Buddha is there.
