The Placid Gautama Buddha

It is at Bodh Gaya that the erstwhile Shakyamuni attained Buddhahood. For years together He remained seated under the Bodhi tree, steeped in seedless contemplation or samadhi of the highest order. There he had arrived after decades of asceticism and mendicancy and austerities, a life diametrically opposite to the one His father the King Suddhodana had given Him. There is no place like Bodh Gaya, and it is from there that the medium of this sculpture has been sourced.

Gambhar wood is an especially smooth medium and has a flaxen appearance. It is a great medium to carve the placid Buddha out of. The sculpture that you see on this page depicts the contemplative (dhyani) Buddha, a theme loved by devotional artisans in the subcontinent. He is clad in a one-shouldered robe and seated on a lotus bed, which is poised on a solid quadrilateral pedestal. His hands are in the abhaya and dharmachakra mudra respectively, while His legs are arranged in the perfect padmasana.

The face of the Buddha is hands-down the most beauteous aspect of this composition. Slightly tilted forward, eyes shut entirely, and a definitively self-contained composure. Zoom in on the same to take in the handsomeness of His princely features and the lengthened earlobes which are a sign of transcendental wisdom.
