Blessing Buddha Life Story

This is the brass representation of Buddha. There is an everlasting placidness and composure on his face. Sitting on the big lotus podium, his right hand is raised in the gesture of blessing the abhaya mudra while the left one is kept at the navel height holding a holy pot. There is plenty of graceful artwork depicting the several incidences of Buddha's life on the surface of the robe put on by Buddha. His eyes are closed in eternity and curly hair and elongated ears are portrayed effectively.The robes of the Buddha feature details of the life of Gautama on his path to becoming the Enlightened One. Representations of the “Three Great Sights”, episodes from the Jataka Tales, in which incarnations of the Buddha appear in animal form, and characters from Buddhist iconography, including demons and angels on clouds are seen. Crucial scenes from Buddha’s life such as his first sermon at Sarnath, where he shared his philosophy of the Eight Fold Path to salvation, are shown on the robes of the Buddha Bhumisparsha Life Story.About BuddhaGautama Buddha was born a prince of the powerful Sakya clan in northern India in 543 B.C. Surrounded by luxury during his youth, he was shocked into reflecting on man’s condition in the world, at the sight of a destitute man, a corpse and an ascetic. He renounced his wealth and family and became a seeker of the truth. After years of penance and meditation he gained enlightenment and came to be known as the Buddha or “The Enlightened One."
