The image of the serene, self-contained Buddha. The erstwhile Shakyamuni, lord (‘muni’) of the Shakya clan, son of the ruler Shuddodhana and His wife, Mayadevi, Siddhartha Gautama was long ordained to be the Buddha. Despite His father’s adoration and loving protection, the mere sight of senescence and death juxtaposed with youth and well-being, was enough to yank Him into the path of self-searching. The murti that you see on this page captures the Buddha at the point of Enlightenment that arrived after those years of austerities and mendicancy and finally samadhi.
A deep brown monotone with gold overtones. A throne carved out of a gigantic lotus bloom, in the bed of which sits the Buddha in a superb padmasana. In one hand, a sprig of the myrobalan (crucial to traditional Tibetan medicine); in the other, a pot of the mystical antidote to senescence and death. From the multitudinous petals of the throne to the embroidered robe of the Buddha and the miniscule coils of His hair, each aspect of this seated murti has been carved with unflinching precision and symmetry. Finally, a handsomely carved head, an inimitable composure of countenance.
