Emaciated Buddha Assuming The Uddiyana Bandha, On Homage Pedestal

Emaciated Buddha Assuming The Uddiyana Bandha, On Homage Pedestal

Emaciated Buddha Assuming The Uddiyana Bandha, On Homage Pedestal

When we hear the word ‘Buddha’, an image very similar to this comes to mind. A haloed figure in poorna-padmasana, the calming stance of His hands, probably under the shade of the luxuriant Bodhi tree. However, the one we are used to has a fuller presence and a stabler aura. In stark contrast to the picture of enlightenment, this Buddha composition depicts the Shakyamuni at a stage preceding His enlightenment. It captures Him in the midst of those years of austerity and asceticism that finally made of Him the Buddha that we know.

Zoom in on the skin of the Buddha, stretched taut over His bones, to appreciate the lifelike precision of the work. From the sharp retractions of the jugular cleft and the soft abdominal wall, one could make out the uddiyana bandha that locks the prana out of the Buddha’s body. Such are the severe and unpalatable rigours of the yogic ascetic. The body withdraws from food and water and suchlike, things that the indriya (perceptive and functional senses) reach out to, as a result of which one grows emaciated. This emaciation is not a sign of weakness, but of independence from extrinsic sources of nourishment that the non-ascetic could not survive without. This sculpture is a tribute to that phase in the Buddha’s journey to kaivalya (supreme independence).

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
