(By Tsem Rinpoche and Pastor David)

According to The Clear Mirror of the Royal Genealogies (Gyalrab Salwai Melong) attributed to Sakyapa Sonam Gyaltsen (1312-1375 CE), the great Tibetan Emperor Songtsen Gampo (617-47 CE) decided that he had to make various statues of his yidam (tutelary deity) to be of benefit to sentient beings within his realm.

While he was in meditation, the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas revealed a pure vision to him. In the vision he was shown a ‘self-arising’ Avalokiteshvara statue made of sandalwood, located in Southern India. This was significant to the emperor as Avalokiteshvara was his yidam or personal meditational Buddha. At this point, it is said that a monk crowned with Buddha Amitabha on top of his head, emanated from the hair between the emperor’s eyebrows and was given the name Akaramatishila. This monk was dispatched to retrieve this statue, which he found in the form of an eleven-faced Avalokiteshvara. He brought the statue back to Tibet and presented it up to the emperor who was very pleased. Immediately, a thought came to the emperor that there was yet another ‘hidden’ emanated statue that would be of tremendous benefit to generations of sentient beings.

The emperor prayed to his yidam and a spectacle unfolded before his very eyes. From the chest of the self-arisen statue, a ray of light emerged and the emperor followed it with his eyes. The light pointed in the direction of the border between Nepal and India and he saw a white sandalwood tree within a dense forest. The tree was shining brightly and from it, the four self-arising brothers appeared. Hence, Akaramatishila was dispatched once more, this time to find the sandalwood tree. After several attempts, the monk finally found the sandalwood tree.

After combing through the dense forest of Southern Nepal for a long, the monk came across a herdsman who was tending many cows in a forest. That evening, the cows’ owner said to the herdsman, “You have been milking my cow!” The herdsman denied it and said that he had not done so. He explained that the cows were left to wander in the forest by themselves. The next day, the herdsman, accompanied by the owner, followed the cows to investigate the matter. They beheld the cows circumambulating the sandalwood tree that radiated light. The milk flowed from the owner’s cow, from her udders, and nourished the tree. The spectacle amazed the two of them. They told the monk and he realised that this was the tree that he had been searching for.

As he was about to cut the tree down, the tree spoke. The upper part of the trunk said to cut slowly as he would go to the settlement of Mangyul (near Kyirong). This self-arisen statue would later be known as the Noble Wati. Then a sound emerged from a portion under Noble Wati and said that he would go to the city of Yam-bu (or Yam-bha) Ya-‘gal. This self-arisen statue would be known as Noble U-Gang. Then another voice emerged from under him. The voice said that he would go to the border of India and Nepal. This self-arisen statue would be known as Noble Jamali. Finally, the fourth voice said that he would go to the snowy peaks of Tibet in order to be Emperor Songtsen Gampo’s yidam. This self-arisen statue would become be known as Noble Lokeshvara of Potala. Collectively, these four statues are known as The Four Exalted Brothers.

The Four Exalted Brothers are in the form of the standing Kharsapani Avalokiteshvara, which is identified by having one face and two arms. The left hand is in the mudra of teaching the Dharma while holding a lotus blooming at his side, and the right hand is in the mudra of transcendent giving or generosity. Thus, the emanated monk returned to Tibet with the statue of the Noble Lokeshvara and Noble Wati. It is for this reason that the Emperor Songtsen Gampo is credited with bringing the worship of Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig to Tibet.

The Noble Wati

Exalted Bros 002

The Noble Wati Zangpo is commonly known as the Jowo of Kyirong. This old statue is the famous sandalwood image of Avalokiteshvara in the form of Kharsapani, and is one of the two Four Exalted Brothers brought over from Nepal by Akaramatishila at the order of Emperor Songtsen Gampo. It was installed at Kyirong and a temple was built to enshrine this sacred image. It was said that the presence of the statue quelled the region of a raging pestilence at the time.

This famous statue of Noble Wati of Kyirong is commonly represented as a background element in paintings of Sakya Pandita when he is depicted in debate posture. This thangka commemorates Sakya Pandita when he defeated an Indian teacher by the name of Harinanda in front of the statue of Noble Wati of Kyirong. Sakya Pandita was the first Tibetan master to achieve this feat. This is remarkable considering the reputation of Indian masters as formidable debaters.

Noble Wati of Kyirong is also said to have spoken several times to the temple caretakers and to have given prophecies of the future. Over the centuries, this sacred statue became an object of veneration. People used to come from all over central Tibet to seek its blessing. After the fall of Tibet, Tibetan refugees took the statue from its temple in Kyirong. It was said that the idea to remove the statue came from a dream a man had. He was staying at the temple for the night. The man said he dreamt that the Noble Wati spoke to him and told him that if he was brought to safety, he would be around for many years to come but if left at the temple, the statue would not last more than another year or two. Today, the Noble Wati is in the possession of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama in Dharamsala in India.

The north side of the Great Western Hall in the Red Palace is the location of one of the oldest and most important chapels. This chapel, along with the Dharma cave below it, dates from the 7th century CE and is called Phakpa Lhakhang. The chapel enshrines the ancient jewel encrusted statue of Avalokiteshvara and two of his attendants. This is the Noble Lokeshvara of the Potala that was once worshipped by the Emperor Songtsen Gampo and now an object of veneration to hundreds of Tibetan pilgrims. On the floor below the chapel is a low and dark passage that leads into the Dharma Cave where Songsten Gampo is believed to have studied Buddhism and meditated. In these caves are the famous statues of Songsten Gampo, his wives, his chief minister and Thonmi Sambhota, the scholar who developed Tibetan script.

The picture on the left is a rare one of an unadorned Noble Lokeshvara. The jewels and silks are never removed unless to apply more gold onto the statue.

The Noble U-Gang

Exalted Bros 011

In Nepal, there is a temple in which an image of Avalokiteshvara is enshrined and is known as the Noble U-Gang. In Nepal, the Noble U-Gang is known by other names such as Bungadeo or Karunamaya by the Newars along with other exalted names like Lokeshvara and Karujuju. To the Hindus, he is known as the famous Rato Macchendranath, the teacher of Gorakhnath (a famous Hindu saint) and he was a siddha-mendicant who is popularly worshipped in the Kathmandu Valley.

The Noble U-Gang is officially enshrined in Bungamati or Bungadeo for half a year and for the other half of the year, the statue is brought over to Tabahal in Patan. The Noble U-Gang is hewn from sandalwood and has detachable arms. The image is in the simple posture of standing, covered with clay and painted red annually. There is a religious festival called a jatra in which the image is paraded around town as a blessing for all who witness the procession.

The Tibetans know Macchendranath as the Mahasiddha Minapa from Abhayadana Sri’s Legends of the Eighty Four Mahasiddhas. Minapa was a Bengali fisherman who on one fateful day, hooked a giant sea creature that put up a great struggle. In the end, the creature pulled him into the ocean’s depths and swallowed him. The fisherman lived in the fish’s belly for twelve years. One day, the sea creature swam close to Mahadeva who had settled himself at the bottom of the ocean in order to teach Umadevi, his consort, a secret Dharma. Consequently, Minapa overheard the instruction and began to practice in the belly of the creature. The sea creature was eventually caught and the yogin was liberated. Minapa found that he had gained siddhi. In the Indian tradition of the siddhas, Macchendranath is also identified with the Mahasiddha Luipa, the fish-gut eater or Minapa. Unfortunately, no authoritative biographical texts survives that could tie the Indian, Tibetan and Nepali cultural traditions together to form a coherent picture. However, the identification of Rato Macchendranath as the Noble U-Gang of the Four Exalted Brothers is the closest identification of this statue.

According to a lama of Kojarnath, the fourth of the Four Exalted Brothers is the sacred statue of the Noble Jamali. The local Newari legends attribute King Gunakamadeva with the worship of Jamali. This king was a contemporary of both King Amsuvarman and the Tibetan Emperor Songtsen Gampo.

In the Newari legends, it was mentioned that a king from the West stole the Noble Jamali. From the 10th to the 13th centuries, the Western Malla kings ruled over Kojarnath and the Noble Jamali was most likely taken hostage by one of the Malla Kings and later reclaimed by the city state kingdoms of the valley. In fact, there were other cases of sacred images being stolen by invading Tibetans in the Vamsavali. The Noble Jamali reappeared in Kathmandu during the reign of Yaksa Malla (1428-1480 CE) and it was recorded that he was found in a well or a field in Jamal, just south of the present royal palace.

It was probably in Yaksa Malla’s time that Jamali was enshrined in Jana Bahal, which was officially known as Kanaka Caitya Mahavihara near Indra Chowk. The Noble Jamali is a plastered statue of Padmapani Lokesvara, white in colour. The Newars call the Noble Jamali, Jama Deo or Karunamaya Lokeswar. However, the Hindus claim that this statue is actually the patron saint of Kathmandu, Seto Macchendranath. The Noble Jamali wears the Bodhisattva crown and ornaments, and the figure of Buddha Amitabha is painted prominently in his hair. Enshrined on his right and left are the White and Green Taras. The Noble Jamali as Seto Macchendranath is honoured yearly in a religious festival in which the statue is paraded around town.

    好精彩的文章!! 谢谢黎国圆讲法师的分享。

    观音菩萨的慈悲让他化现成为四尊不同的木像, 让我们可以直接看到观音菩萨的形象, 可以直接献上供养, 与观音菩萨结缘。

    我曾经参观过第四尊, Noble Jamali。 就在尼泊尔加德满都。 那里常年都有很多朝圣者或游客来到, 向这尊观音菩萨献上供养。 而且我们也可以看到当地人都会在哪里献上酥油灯, 就好像是日常生活一直都会做的事情。

    其他三尊也非常漂亮、庄严, 也带有一些神秘的色彩。
    希望未来也有机会一览其他三尊观音的风采。

    谢谢

    Thank you P David, for this very interesting mystical story of the self-arising statues of Avalokiteshvara retrieved for the great Tibetan Emperor Songsten Gampo by a mystically arisen monk, Akaramatishila.

    The great Tibetan Emperor Songtsen Gampo, out of great compassion, decided that he had to make various statues of his yidam (tutelary deity) to be of benefit to sentient beings within his realm. In his meditation, he was given a vision of a ‘self arising’ Avalokiteshvara statue made of sandalwood, located in Southern India. Akaramatishila who emanated from the hair between the eyebrows of the emperor, successfully brought this statue ,an eleven-faced Avalokiteshvara, back to Tibet.

    Then, after thinking that there would be more statues to be discovered and brought back for the benefit of all beings, the emperor received the vision of a white sandalwood tree in a deep forest and , out of that tree four self-arising brothers appeared. Akaramatishila found the tree and managed to retrieve the four brothers.The four brothers are -the Noble Wati who was installed in Kyirong), Noble U-Gang in Yam-bu , Noble Jamali and Noble Lokeshvara of Potala.The four are known as the Four Exalted Brothers.

    All these statues arose out of the great compassion of Avalokiteshvara to bless and protect all beings. The places where these statues have been installed , have now become pilgrimage sights. Knowing how they mysticaaly arose, fills us with awe at the power of Buddhas like Avalokitehvara in manifesting their compassion.

    The emanated monk Akaramatishila returned to Tibet with the statues of the Noble Lokeshvara and Noble Wati. It is for this reason that the Emperor Songtsen Gampo is credited with bringing the worship of Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig to Tibet.

    “This is the Noble Lokeshvara of the Potala that was once worshipped by the Emperor Songtsen Gampo and now an object of veneration to hundreds of Tibetan pilgrims. On the floor below the chapel is a low and dark passage that leads into the Dharma Cave where Songsten Gampo is believed to have studied Buddhism and meditated. In these caves are the famous statues of Songsten Gampo, his wives, his chief minister and Thonmi Sambhota, the scholar who developed Tibetan script.”

    This is very interesting indeed because there is a strong link between King Songsten Gampo and Dorje Shugden emanation Thonmi Sambhota.

    One evidence is the Pabongka Monastery in Lhasa which has a long history that pre-dates the building of the Jokhang and the Ramoche temple.

    King Songtsen Gampo lived here together with his queens and studied the Tibetan script that was constructed by Thonmi Sambhota in the same period and place. The original stone with the first Tibetan text – a carved out “Om mani padme hum” – can be seen at the Rigsum Gonpo Lhakang below the main palace. (see attached photo)

    The four Rigsum Gonpo Lhakhangs were all built in the seventh century during the time of King Songtsen Gampo, each situated in a cardinal direction with Jokhang at the center. Popular legend credits Songtsen Gampo with building the four Rigsum Gonpos to protect the Jokhang. The Rigsum Gonpo are Avalokiteshvara, Manjushri and Vajrapani, a triad of deities known as Lords of the Three Families, representing the body, speech and mind of all buddhas of all times.

    It’s interesting to know how King Songtsen Gampo was credited with bringing the worship of Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig to Tibet as opposed to how the other Dharma Kings are said to have brought Buddhism to Tibet. Maybe that’s why the Tibetans love Chenrezig so much.

    And, the locals show such reverence and worship for Chenrezig though they are known different to them. The temples housing 2 of the 4 exalyed brothers in Nepals have been around for hundreds of years and are still revered today. There has to be something to these legends.

    Thank you, Pastor David for a very interesting sharing.

    I wonder what is the significant of knowing these Four Exalted Brothers? Sorry for my ignorance but are these Four Brothers enlightened? Are they an emanation?

    If I didn’t come across this storyear, I would have thought that They were just local deities.

    Thanks Pastor David Lai.

    • Choong on Dec 8, 2016 at 1:51 pm

      They are all Chenrezig arising from the same sandalwood tree.

      • Jacinta Goh on Dec 8, 2016 at 7:09 pm

        To summarise, They emanated from Lord Chenrezig to suit the needs of the practitioners at that time. Am I correct?

        P/s : I will bear in mind that They are the same nature.
        Thanks Choong.

        • Pastor David Lai on Dec 10, 2016 at 12:43 am

          Dear Jacinta,
          The Four Exalted Brothers are statues of a form of standing Kuan Yin / Chenrezig / Avalokiteshvara that was carved from a single sandalwood tree. These are not local deities. These statues are famous for having shown many miracles especially the ability to speak and give prophecies of the future like the Noble Wati. Hence, they are very popular among Tibetan pilgrims who come to pay homage to these statues because it would be like praying before Chenrezig.

  11. Joy Kam on Dec 8, 2016 at 12:49 am

    Thank you Pastor David for presenting this very interesting story of the Four Exalted Brothers. Everything about it is truly magical especially in the beginning how the Tibetan Emperor Songtsen Gampo had a vision of Avalokiteshvara when he was meditating and was shown a ‘self-arising’ statue of Avalokiteshvara made of sandalwood.Basically how everything unfolded sounds very magical.

    I sometimes wonder how come these magical kind of things hardly appears these days like in ancient times? Could it be because we lack the merits and people in general are not as spiritual as before? Then shouldn’t it be more relevant for miraculous signs to appear, I guess it boils down to lack of merits on our part and not enough real genuine practitioners of the Dharma.

    These stories help spiritual seekers like myself to keep having faith and to keep up our practice because such magic does exist, and it is up to us to preserve these teachings to continue to give hope and light to others who may have lost their way. In a way these type of stories reminds me of the movie called Lady in the Water by M. Night Shyamalan, where people have forgotten how “believe” and have forgotten to to find their true purpose in life.

    Thank you again Pastor David, for such tales keep our imagination flowing and keep the faith that miracles do and can happen.It also makes me appreciate seeing these statues better, if I do see them again in Nepal, and to receive Avalokiteshvara’s great blessings.

  12. Paul Yap on Dec 7, 2016 at 10:54 am

    The story of “The Four Exalted Brothers” is very interesting and i felt lots of excitement after reading this, its like the movie Harry Porter came to life. I have first followed H.E Tsem Rinpoche to a pilgrimage trip in Nepal during 2008, It was an eye opener. I will never know there are so many holly Buddhist places out there if not for Rinpoche’s kindness. Im glad recently i have the opportunity making a pilgrimage trip to Nepal again making offerings to Vajrayogini, and one of the The Four Exalted Brothers. I like these holy places alot. I hope i can always come back to these places to make more offerings.

    The guard in Kechara Forest Retreat is sensitive to unseen beings. He often sees spirits walking up and down the road outside of the gate of Kechara Forest Retreat but could not get in. One particular spirit he saw is 7 feet tall without a head but with a pair of red eyes on the chest. He said he is not afraid of the spirits because he is protected by Dorje Shugden. Kechara Forest Retreat is the mandala of Vajrayogini and is highly blessed. No spirits or negative energy can enter unless permission is given. From what the guard has said, this is proven to be true.

    22 years ago, a ban on the practice of Dorje Shugden was imposed by the Tibetan leadership, Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) in Dharamsala. Since the ban was imposed, the Tibetan community is split into groups and Dorje Shugden practitioners are segregated. The CTA said Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit and he is harmful, he will jeopardise the Tibet Cause and shorten the Dalai Lama’s life. Many people are misled by the CTA and believe what they said. Fortunately, Tsem Rinpoche and Kecharians have created videos to address all the lies the CTA has been telling to clear Dorje Shugden’s name. Please watch the videos to learn more about the issues and not to be misled.

    The mystery of Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov, a mummy whose body defies time has amazed the world. Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov was a Buryat Buddhist lama of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. According to his last will and testament he requested to be buried as he was at the time of his death, sitting in lotus posture Only that he asked to be exhumed after 30 years Later. His body was exhumed and examined by Buddhist monks, discovered surprisingly that there is no signs of decay of his body after so many years. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche this sharing.

    Stupas were built in ancient times serving as tombs for important figures, but has since been renewed by the Buddha to represent the heart of Enlightenment. Since then , many Dorje Shugden stupas have built in every Buddhist country in the world and by Buddhists of all traditions especially inTibet . Every corner over Tibet many Dorje Shugden stupas have been erected then. This is a sign that the magnificent Protector and its practice is spreading far and wide.
    Due to the power of its blessings to practitioners, stupas are often a pilgrimage destination for Buddhists and many will circumambulate the stupa as it is a very meritorious. One such place is the famous Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal and our very own Kechara Forest Retreat at Bentong ,Pahang Malaysia.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Please do watch these enlightening videos that serves to clarify the truth about the Tibetan situation. You owe it to yourself to understand the disinformation that the Tibetan Leaders are dispensing to their people to divert attention away from their failures. Very disgraceful!

    Dr. Ambedkar: Supreme Champion of Human Rights

    Dr. Ambedkar is a hero and icon for the Dalits of India who were once called ‘Untouchables.’ He fought to eradicate the discrimination and inequality that he knew all too well because he, too, was an Untouchable by birth. He was a leader of the Dalits and the Law Minister of the Government of India from 1947 to 1951.

    Mahatma Gandhi’s fight for freedom involved uniting India to rise against an external enemy – the colonial British regime that ravaged the country – but Dr. Ambedkar’s struggle was a far more challenging one as he was fighting against his own people. He was fighting the oppression and inequality that has been deeply entrenched for thousands of years as part of his society’s religious and cultural dogma.

    Huge outdoor Tsongkapa!

    Both Buddha Shakyamuni and Guru Rinpoche prophesied Tsongkhapa’s birth and attainments. At the time of Buddha Shakyamuni, a young boy who was a previous incarnation of Tsongkhapa presented a crystal rosary to Buddha and received a conch shell in return. Buddha prophesied Manjushri would be born as a boy in Tibet, would found Ganden monastery, and would present a crown to my statue. Buddha gave the boy the future name Sumati-kirti (Blo-bzang grags-pa, Lozang-dragpa). Guru Rinpoche also prophesied a monk named Lozang-dragpa would be born near China, would be regarded as an emanation of a great bodhisattva, and would make a Buddha-statue into a Sambhogakaya representation.

    Wow, this young boy could paint like an experienced painter with a style that is so unique. He is very talented since young. But where does the talent come from? How come some people have a special talent since birth but some do not? For Buddhists, we believe that the talent is actually the imprint from the previous life. It is something that the person has done so much in their previous life that when they take rebirth in another body, they still have the tendency to do the same thing if the condition is right.

    This special post “Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s Advice on Dorje Shugden’s Practice” contains His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s actual speech and the accompanying English translation on the benefits of Dorje Shugden’s practice and lineage. Fantastic! We all know Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is the same nature as Heruka-Chakrasamvara. To hear his voice is a tremendous blessing as he was an erudite Pandit, master artist, supreme debater, historian, Mahasiddha and highly attained yogi. He was also extremely kind, loving, caring and he dedicated his whole life to teaching the Dharma to thousands. He was a beautiful human being. He was also my spiritual father and root guru.

    I came across his beautiful speech on the World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden and I have blogged his holy speech so that many around the world can listen to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche explain the benefits of this supreme protector. There can be no doubts after this.

    Who dare say that Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was wrong, errant, without knowledge or evil? No one can say this as it is untrue. So far this blog post has garnered over 134k (one hundred thirty-four thousand views)!! It has reached a vast amount of people so they can hear first hand from an enlightened lama how beneficial Dorje Shugden is!! Many wonderful people who seek knowledge and wisdom will benefit from this and I rejoice.

    In his love for me, over 30 years ago Kyabje Zong Rinpoche personally instructed me to practice Dorje Shugden and I know he would never give me anything that would harm me or anyone else. As such, I have great confidence and I share Dorje Shugden with thousands including family, close friends, benefactors and so many others who need help because I know he will benefit others as he did me. His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was a Bodhisattva who lived his life only to benefit others. Whatever promises I have made to him, I will never abandon. I will forever bow to his holy feet.

    Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    P.S. To this post I have recently added translations of these speeches into Japanese, Nepalese and Spanish.

    Queen Genepil, the last queen of Mongolia and last wife of the last Mongol Khan. Interesting short biography of this Mongol queen. At age 33 in her 5 months pregnancy , she was executed with her father because of her involvement with the Japanese forces . Queen Genepil had in fact concealed many mystery and past secrets in the palace unknown to many. She looked pretty in the queen costumes with a beautiful head gear, just wondering if nowadays the Mongolian Queen wear this . We are considered fortunate able to see this rare costumes. Interesting history to read.

    Interesting news …… Oklahoma Supreme Court had decide to separate religion and politics. The history of the world, we can see clearly how the involvement of government in religious matters has caused great discrimination among the communities. An example in the Tibetan Leardership , because of the ban on Dorje Shugen practice it cause hardships, suffering ,discrimination, disharmony, and many more. For the past decades , many of the Tibetans in exiles had suffered badly. Where religion is concern ,politics should not comes in. Freedom of religion is a principle that supports the freedom of an individual or community, and so forth without government influence and intervention. It also includes the freedom to change one’s religion or beliefs. No government should speak against another religion or any religion. Peace, harmony and happiness can only materialised with respect among and within all people. Everyone of us should be given the choice to what we want to pray.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Dorje Shugden Gyenze to Increase Life, Merits and Wealth

    In one of our private sessions, I asked Kensur Rinpoche, “If we fully rely on Dorje Shugden, and focus on Dorje Shugden, technically can we become fully enlightened?” And Kensur Rinpoche thought about it and he said, “Yes, we definitely can become fully enlightened because Dorje Shugden is a fully enlightened being.”

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

  • If there were more schools like this, then our kids would grow up with more caring awareness and kind emotions towards our environment and the people around them. They would grow up knowing that chasing materialism is not going to bring any happiness. I hope very much more schools like this would materialise. I hope in my future life I can attend a school like this. Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    1 years ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
