Vitarka Mudra Buddha Upon A Luxuriant Lotus Pedestal

Vitarka Mudra Buddha Upon A Luxuriant Lotus Pedestal

While seated Buddha sculptures are to be found in abundance, the one that you see on this page is a distinguished work of art. Made from pure brass, it depicts the erstwhile Shakyamuni in padmasana, a stance that is the culmination of bahiranga yoga or, in other words, of all asanas. In the left hand which He rests on His lap, He cradles the almsbowl, a remnant of His days of mendicancy; the right hand He raises in the vitarka mudra, which is the wisdom-dispensing mudra. His half-shut eyes seem to glow with the light of Enlightenment. His thick curls are piled high above His head in a bun whose silhouette resembles the stoopa. His face, sculpted in perfect symmetry, is flanked by earlobes wizened by age and accumulated wisdom. All of these aspects are integral to the Buddha iconography.

The robe He is wearing is an unusual one. Its surface area is embossed with identical chequered panels, each of which features a delicately petalled flower. The super-narrow border is defined by graciously curving vines. These make it one of the most glamorous robes a modern-day seated Buddha sculpture may come in. The pedestal on which the figure is poised is the most striking aspect of the composition. A gigantic lotus turned upside down; on top of it is a lotus of slightly smaller circumference, whose ample petals form concentric circles around the seat of the Buddha. Note the metallic gold highlights on the petals as well as the Buddha’s bare skin.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
Thank you for your wonderful service and amazing book selection. We are long time customers and have never been disappointed by your great store. Thank you and we will continue to shop at your store
