On this day, a week or so past the 2,500-something birthday of Shakyamuni Buddha, the Third Annual Buddhapalooza festival was held in Chattanooga.  Inexplicably, it was a total freaking success, and included meditation, Zen and Tibetan dharma talks, readings of Norman Fisher's A Model of the World and Walt Whitman's Carol of Words, and musical performances by Michael Goldman and Blue Lotus. 

We are indebted for the beautiful banner for the event made by the inmates of Georgia's Walker State Prison.

Here are my crappy cell-phone pictures of the event.
