Buddha Boxes Fever

I first became aware of these wonderful machines of religion at my aunt's house. This was the plug-in type they'd use to keep the chants a-rockin' while they were out. Much more common seem to be the type I got from Hsi Lai Sı, where I nabbed a few for flee-ninety-nine a couple years ago. This led to a mistaken impression that I'd find them aplenty and cheap in Taiwan. Aho! They were to be found in pricey Buddhist gift shops and flea markets for not much less. I'm hoping Hsi Lai Sı is still in stock.
