Buddhist image copying is called shabutsu. it, originally was one of the Buddhist practices for esoteric Buddhism monks.

For Shabutsu, you rut thin copying paper on the Buddhist image, and trace Buddha. Because it is only tracing the lines, shabutsu is very easy for all people.

Tracing the image of Buddha means to unite one's mind and body to Buddha. Shabutsu heals our mind, and leads us to the mental practice. It is not a simple work, even if copying the images is easy. The lines express our minds. Even if two people copy same Buddhism images, the finished images, the finished images will not be the same.

If you have the Buddhist image, tracing paper, writing brush, and ink, you can start shabutsu anytime, and anywhere.
