Fine Detail Shakyamuni Statue Features:
This Shakyamuni statue depicts the original Buddha in finest detail. The classic Bhumisparsha mudra is being used by the Buddha to overcome the final temptations of the demon Mara. In English, Bhumisparsha means “calling the earth to witness”. The Buddha made the earth touching gesture and called the earth goddess to witness his victory. Then the earth goddess appeared and she washed away the demon. As a result, the Buddha shared his wisdom with sentient life.
In the palm of his left hand Shakyamuni Buddha is holding the rice bowl. Also, known as the offering bowl, alms bowl or “Gupta”. In Buddhism, the alms bowl is very significant. The alms bowl is commonly held by Buddhist monks to receive donations from the Buddhist layman. Additionally, the alms bowl signifies the defeat of attachment. For example, while Shakyamuni was meditating under the Bodhi tree he was given a golden bowl full of rice. However, he took the rice out of the bowl and threw the gold bowl into the river. Next, he divided the rice into portions equal to the days remaining until his enlightenment. Click here to learn more about the historical Buddha.
