Vintage Large Elegant Tibetan Brass Sacred Shakyamuni Buddha Statue from NEPAL
Tibetan brass standing buddha statue, very exquisitely handmade! Lord Buddha
is in a Bhumisparsha Mudra (Earth Touching, Calling the Earth to Witness)
posture. The mudra symbolizes the union of method and wisdom, samasara and
nirvana, and also the realizations of the conventional and ultimate truths!
It is in this posture that Shakyamuni overcame the obstructions of Mudra
while meditating on Truth. This Buddha statue is delicately hand carved,
with the hair, eyes, nose, mouth, ears are all vivid and exquisite, and
the clothes lines are very natural and living, and it is very heavy &
big, as it measures approx. 21 1/2" * 8 1/8 (Height * Diameter).
Sage of the Shakyas, founder of Buddhism, is often referred to simply as
the Buddha or the Historical Buddha, although many Buddhists believe that
more than one Buddha, or enlightened one, has existed in this world. Born
in Lumbini (in modern Nepal) in the sixth century BC as Prince Siddhartha
Gautama of the Shakya clan, he rejected his royal lifestyle in order to
pursue a true understanding of the nature of life. He followed several spiritual
leaders, some of whom practiced harsh austerities including starvation,
and he was unsatisfied by their teachings. After years of searching, he
achieved spiritual enlightenment, nirvana, after meditating intensely under
a Bodhi tree. From then on, he became known as Shakyamuni or the Buddha.
The Buddha then traveled around India sharing his knowledge until his death,
and final enlightenment, or parinirvana, at the age of about eighty. His
teachings, or dharma, also known as the Middle Way, emphasize a life of
moderation based on the Four Noble Truths: (i) life is full of suffering;
(ii) the source of suffering is desire or attachment; (iii) to end suffering,
we must transcend desire and attachment; (iv) to do so, we must follow the
Eightfold Path of right speech, right livelihood, right action, right effort,
right mindfulness, right concentration, right opinion and right intention.

Key Product Knowledge
Most jewelry worn in Tibet and Nepal is for its protective properties and its beauty. All my listed Amulets are protection effective, as they have been activated by a Buddhist Lama or a Brahmin Priest. Coral and turquoise are considered to offer protection against the evil eye. The piercing of ears is considered protective, even before earrings with protective stones are worn. Please refer THE JEWELRY OF NEPAL by Gabriel for wonderful information and superb pictures. These Tibetan jewelry are mainly bought from Nepal people, or Tibetan refugees in Nepal, and some are from people still living in Tibet.
Embroidered textiles clothing & bedroom doors, prayer flags flying in the courtyard, Dalai Lama lovingly picture frame hung on the wall, you may not be in the scene, but you will have the touch of the feelings, after you own a few Tibetan collections!
