More info

The Buddha sits on a magnificent, blooming lotus flower base with 5 tiers of lotus petals. His robes flow naturally over his body like water cascading down a waterfall. The Buddha is hand carved from a single piece of sheesham wood (Indian Rosewood) by our master craftsmen.

The Buddha, whose original name was Siddhartha Gautama, was the founder of Buddhism, the religion and the philosophical system that produced a great culture throughout much of southern and eastern Asia.  Buddha, meaning "awakened one" or "enlightened one" is a title not a name.  

The essence of the Buddha's early preaching was said to be the four Noble truths:

  1. life is fundamentally disappointment and suffering.  
  2. suffering is a result of one's desires for pleasure, power, and continued existence;
  3. to stop disappointment and suffering on must stop desiring; and
  4. the way to stop desiring and thus suffering is the Noble eight fold path - right views, right intention, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right awareness and right concentration.  The realization of the truth of anatman (no eternal self) was taught as essential for the indescribable state of release called nirvana.
