Shakyamuni Buddha, Ashtamangalas On His Lifelike Drape

Colors available: 2
Current: Brown Gold

The Buddha is radiant. His skin is flawless, His form cast in the best proportions of man. In Sanskrit, 'buddha' means a higher-order awakening, an awakening to the primordial realities of compassion and self-existent wisdom. Each of the finishes this statue comes in brings out the enlightened beauty of His being in full measure. Indeed, this handpicked Buddha is not a mere object of worship: it is a mirror of the innermost layer of your being. Pick a variation suited to your space and temperament, and let this be the icon of your journey from ignorance to illumination.

At the juncture of awakening, when the former prince of a North Indian warring clan transitioned from the hungering acetic to the Buddha Himself, He touched (sparsha) a finger to the earth (bhumi), invoking it as His witness. The sootras narrate how the grahas (planets) came to a standstill and the entirety of jivas (living creatures) made their obeisance to Him. Despite being beyond the scope of art and literature, the superb brasswork captures the glamour of Shakyamuni's unsurpassed awakening. "Do not look to me," Shakyamuni had said, "but to the enlightenment state."

The Buddha's lobes droop with the weight of His karnaphool, an indication of His supreme wisdom. There is untold bliss writ on His brow, three characteristic curves of the conch on His sweet throat. His gracious torso and limbs emerge from underneath a robe containing the ashtamangalas in dense, complex patterns, which gathers in luxuriant folds beneath Him. The drape that covers the entirety of the Buddha's back has been sculpted exquisitely with motifs of great spiritual significance in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. For example, beneath the seated Shakyamuni's waist is a couple of deers on either side of a golden dharmachakra, symbolic of fidelity and harmony. At the centre of the spine is the dragon, which represents the masculine principle (yang) inclusive of creative and transformative energies. The snow-lion between His shoulders is the national animal of Tibet and is said to preside over its snow-capped mountains, lending to Buddha the name of Shakyasimha.
