As for bowing to a picture, never understood this one and never have done it. I can cope with bowing to a person, but a picture does get my goat.
Hmm, I guess I never considered it bowing to the actual picture I always thought of it as showing respect to the memory of the person in the picture. Bowing more to the memory of their efforts and accomplishments that allow us to practice this art than to the image of the person itself.



"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
