Nepali Shakyamuni Buddha Statue Features:
Our Nepali Shakyamuni Buddha statue is depicted sitting in the full lotus pose, also known as the “vajra pose”. The translation of Vajra is diamond or lightening bolt. Indeed, the Vajra symbolizes unwavering concentration and intense effort necessary to progress in Buddhism.
The statue is also depicted using the Bhumisparsha mudra with his right hand draped over his right knee. As a result, the Buddha calls the goddess of the earth to witness his supreme victory over the provocations and temptations of the demon Mara.
In the left hand, Shakyamuni is holding the small bowl which contains the three nectars of awakening. The precious three nectars have eliminated the 3 demons representing greed, hatred and ignorance. Additionally, the bowl is significant because it symbolizes the overcoming of attachment. Click here to learn more about the true origin of Buddhism.
