Description

The Shakyamuni Buddha, also known as the Gautama Buddha was a originally a prince from Nepal of the name Siddhartha Gautama. He is believed by Buddhists to be an enlightened teacher who attained full Buddhahood and shared his insights to help sentient beings end rebirth and suffering. Accounts of his life, discourses and monastic rules are believed by Buddhists to have been summarised after his death and memorized by his followers. Various collections of teachings attributed to him were passed down by oral tradition and first committed to writing about 400 years later.

Here, Shakyamuni Buddha is portrayed in the “Earth Touching Pose” with his right arm resting on the right thigh with the fingers pointing downwards, and his left hand resting upwards, the pose that Shakyamuni Buddha used right before his enlightenment where a demon tried to trick him into moving. The Buddha’s eyes are almost closed in meditation.

This statue is a suitable gift for Buddhists or to people who enjoy meditation or yoga. Placing a Buddha statue at home reminds us of kindness and tolerance, to treat people all living things around us well, and to pray for peace and happiness. If there is a Bodhisattva and a Buddha statue in the same space, it is recommended to place the statue of the Buddha in the center, and the Bodhisattva on the left or right of the Buddha image. If the Buddha statue is placed high in the center, then the Bodhisattva should be placed in a low position in front of the Buddha statue.

释迦牟尼佛,又称释迦如来,是佛教创始人,最初为来自尼泊尔的王子,姓乔达摩,名悉达多。佛教徒认为他是一位开明的老师,他获得了完全的佛性,并分享了他的智慧,以帮助众生结束轮回和苦难。在佛教中,释迦牟尼被认为是世间最尊贵者,故弟子与信徒们,常以世尊来称呼释迦牟尼。佛并非神而是境界在神之上的人,因为诸佛都是生在人间的凡人。这尊释迦牟尼佛像为成道像,结跏趺坐,左手横置左足上,名为“定印”,表示禅定之意;右手直伸下垂,名为“触地印”,乃佛陀成道时所结的印相,能制服一切诸魔。

摆放一尊佛像在家,可提醒我们仁慈与宽容,善待身边的人,事,物,同时祈求平安顺利。家中如同时有菩萨和佛像摆放在一起,请将佛像放于正中央,菩萨则摆放于佛像的左右手边。如果佛像置于中央高位处,那么菩萨请摆放于佛像前面低处的位置。
