Finally a non-pearly gates cartoon for Steve Jobs

Last week I posted links to several observations that Apple CEO, a buddhist by most accounts, was largely depicted at the Pearly Gates in the numerous obit cartoons. At least one cartoonist opted to recognize Jobs’ buddhist beliefs.

One of the funnier ones, and a really original take on the tired “pearly gates” meme.

This is one of the funnier ones I’ve seen on the topic which makes not prediction on the outcome … (heaven, or emptiness or etc) …

Saw it only because I was racing around google plus trying to get people who were sharing it to give Matt credit for it.

Didn’t this post AFTER the big conversation here at TDC about the “pearly gates” imagery in other Steve Jobs obit editorial cartoons? So, original? maybe. Timely. A little late.

Show Buddhists some respect! Buddhist’s do not believe in reincarnation.
