Smiling a slightly intellectual smile, the golden-bodied Buddha is sitting in the padmasana on a lotus pedestal with one leg crossed over the other. The left hand is placed in his lap in the dhyana (meditation) mudra. The right meanwhile gently touches the base, a reminder of the historical moment in the eventful life of the Buddha when he gently nudged Mother Earth into acknowledging his spiritual triumph resulting in the attainment of Nirvana.

His hair (colored a typical blue in Nepal), is made of snail like crawling curls. The sculptor's intimate acquaintance with the spiritual aesthetics of Buddha's image is evident in the number of supernatural signs of greatness. These are:

1). The bump at the top of the head known as ushnisha. This signifies wisdom.

2). The elongated earlobes symbolizing renunciation. Before enlightenment, Buddha was born as prince Siddhartha in the lap of luxury. Numerous large and heavy jewels once hung from his ears during the royal days.

3). The curl between the eyebrows (urna). This represents discrimination (viveka).

4). The three conch-like curving lines on the neck. These suggest the sweetness of his speech.

The Buddha wears a monastic robe, with finely delineated folds and a gold hemmed border, which covers both shoulders. His lips are soft and gentle. The realistically delinetaed eyes are framed at the top by arched brows. The nose is well-formed and sharp. The straight poised head complements the erect held body in meditative introspection.

This sculpture was created by Shri Madan Prajapati of Patan, Kathmandu (Nepal).

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
