Edgar Owen <I believe the tradition is that a beggars bowl and his 
loincloth or robe were his only possessions. The rest he left behind 
with his family.

Sure, but this guy was sitting in a cave for nine years. He was not 
begging town-to-town. Somebody had to feed him for nine years, 
somebody was paying his way to enlightenment. Somebody else was 
busting his own chops and cracking his own nuts so that Buddha-boy 
could have a sandwich every day. 

Not to mention that the loincloth had to be pretty dirty after sitting 
on it for nine years. Let's hope he was getting at least a new one 
every year.
