Buddha is not a proper name, but an attribute of one who has recognized as having attained wisdom (bodhi) that illuminates the darkness of ignorance.

The life of Buddha has been a subject of many a tale and subsequently art. The artist of this Buddha painting on silk divides the canvas into clear cut sections to narrate the story of his birth and a saint's prediction that led to him being kept away from the realities of life. In some sections, the artist shows Buddha coming face to face with old age, sickness and death that changes the course of his life. The lower segments see him leave home in search of nirvana, till he attains it, including episodes relating to Sujata and Mara.

The artist has devoted a major and central part to the Parinirvana of Buddha with his followers around him. As in all paintings with Buddha as its theme, there is peace and tranquillity reflected. The artist has adhered to chronological narration of events, using a bright and colourful palette.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
