    Marvel by Moebius.

    A great artist can take a classic design and make it their own while keeping the essence intact. Moebius was definitely one of the greats.

    Someone goes to hell and finds that everyone there is suffering because they cannot eat even though each has a scrumptuous meal right in front of them. The reason they can’t eat is that their chopsticks are longer than their arms, so they cannot put the food in their mouths. The person then goes to the Buddha land. There, again, the chopsticks are longer than people’s arms. But everyone is content. Why? It’s because they take turns feeding one another.

    In other words, the difference between hell and Buddhahood is not one of environment. The difference lies solely in the hearts of those dwelling in these realms.
