Light Fantastic

There are many types of Buddha images in Bangkok taxis, but this is the first one I've seen that has changing colored lights inside of it. According to the driver, the luminous colors are supposed to represent the hues of the seven chakras, or energy centers, in the body. But as the lights flashed different colors, it reminded me more of a discotheque than a spiritual aura.
