The highest of the order and the most enlightened one, sits on a slightly visible distinctive looking three legged pedestal that has wings like ends and a circular fan base from the front. Gautama Buddha was a philosopher and a spiritual teacher who lead the disciples towards a path free from material environment and values, towards the greatest knowledge and wisdom. He had a view of the four great sights- an old man, a sick man, a dead man and homeless holy man, so went on to be a mendicant and eventually became a religious leader for the people.
Here, he rests in his lotus posture, blessing the devotees to be awakened; veiled in his royal robe decorated with a thick beaded border and the auspicious eight symbols of Buddha Dharma chiselled gratefully at random distances. The soothing eyes disguised in Dhyana with uncountable coiled hair locks representing his years of meditation in all changing continuous climatic conditions.
This brass statue evenly and beauteously highlights the spiritual values of the Shakyamuni Buddha, applauding the great knowledge, patience and months of hard work of the sculptor to create this one of a kind masterpiece.
