BUDHA

An astral God representing Mercury

Not, as you might think, a crafty BUDDHA impersonator. He is the product of a brief liaison between TARA, Goddess of the planet Jupiter, and CHANDRA, the Moon God.

This affair caused a short scandal across the solar system but TARA's husband BRIHASPATI took the matter very well and brought BUDHA up as his own. However, to keep the boy safe from all those wagging tongues in the sticks of the outer solar system, they sent him to live right at the heart of things near the Sun.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Budha graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Budha movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Budha statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Budha. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
