Years Of Contemplation

Years Of Contemplation

Years Of Contemplation

Under the Bodhi tree, the seated Siddhartha Gautama borders on Enlightenment. In one life He has lived the ways of the Shakyamuni, the renunciate, the wanderer and mendicant, and the ascetic. After numberless cycles of birth and death and birth anew, it took him a single glance at well-being, senescence, disease, and death, each juxtaposed against the other, to set off in search of the truth in this lifetime.

The chhavi (image) of the Buddha captured in this sculpture subsumes all of that. All of the suffering that had stained the now pacified citta, the pleasure and the pain alike. He is now steeped in profound contemplation, perfectly withdrawn into the infinitude of samadhi. His legs are gathered in a fine padmasana and a hand rests on His lap, the palm of which faces skyward in keeping with the traditional contemplative stance of Indian yogis. With the other hand, He extends His sparsha (touch) to the bhoomi (earth) beneath Him, calling upon it as witness to His Enlightenment.

Carved from a block of pure homegrown wood, the composition is a deep earthy monotone. Perfect symmetry pervades the Buddha’s shoulders and limbs, from the thoroughly immersed countenance to the lotus pedestal He is seated on. The sheer skill of the sculptor could be deduced from the frontal curvature of the figure’s abdomen and the finesse of the digits.

Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
Thank you for your wonderful service and amazing book selection. We are long time customers and have never been disappointed by your great store. Thank you and we will continue to shop at your store
Michael, USA
I am extremely happy with the two I have already received!
