Kennedy Berry’s “a Buddha,”

“I chose ‘a Buddha,’ as my phrase because the Buddha means a lot to me. I attend Naropa University and am a practicing Zen Buddhist. I remember my professor in my freshman seminar class saying, ‘To many, a Buddha is a fat man who brings peace or just Siddhartha, who is looked at as the only Buddha. In reality, a Buddha is a person’s spiritual enlightenment, someone who has lost the attachment to their ego and found true happiness in the love of themselves, others, and the world they live in.’ I hope to be that type of person and my tattoo is a reminder of that goal every day.”
