An aesthetically rendered masterpiece of spiritual art, the brass statue, anodized in lustrous gold and bright tint of copper, besides shading using darker tints of either, gold for body colour, and copper for ‘sanghati’, the only wear the figure has been draped with, represents Lord Buddha journeying around for spreading the light : the ultimate knowledge that he had attained. One of the most widely and popularly represented forms of the Great Master the tall slender figure with great sublimity enshrining the face has been classified in the Buddhist iconographic tradition as ‘Buddha, the universal teacher’. The statue represents the stage in his life when after attaining Enlightenment he decides to move around the world and teach the path of redemption from the fear of old age, sickness and death, and finally from the cycle of death and birth.

Not any particular event or occasion as the statues illustrating ‘Dharma-chakra pravartana’ – putting the wheel of Law in motion, represent, the universal teacher statues represent the sum of his forty years long travels that he performed till his Mahaparinirvana for enlightening the world. A tall slender figure usually with a forward thrust but sometimes also in still posture with knotted or gesticulated fingers as if elaborating a point, known in iconographic terminology as ‘vitark-mudra’ – interpretive posture, often in a long ritual robe – ‘sanghati’, a term used for Buddha’s long gown type wear or for the long sheet that draped his figure, and divine quiescence, sublimity, great spiritual strength and divine aura reflecting on his face, is usually the image that represented the Buddha, the universal teacher.

One of the four most significant stages in his life, other being different aspects as Sakya Muni including emaciated Buddha and Buddha in meditation, Bhumi-sparsha – the earth touching event leading to the attainment of Enlightenment, and Dharma-chakra-pravartana – putting the wheel of Law in motion, leading to the birth of three great jewels : Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha, the Buddha, the universal teacher, represents the aggregate of all prior stages and is hence the essence of his entire being. First stage is preparatory; second, defines attainment; third, lays the foundation; and, the last, the loftiest of the buildings is raised. For forty years Buddha moved from one place to other, held congregations or group discussions, faced questions and resolved them and led billions to where there was old age but not its fear, illness prevailed but did not frightened any, and death was a phenomenon but not an unwelcome guest.

In the style of clothing : the sanghati with delicately designed borders and decorative ‘pata’, vertical band between the parting of legs, wrapped loosely over the left shoulder and arm and a girdle with a stylistic brooch or buckle tied around the belly, iconographic modeling of the figure with a broadened face, and the style of eyebrows and eyes, besides its rare lustre and votive character, this brass-statue of the universal teacher has reflections of Tibetan Buddhist art. However, the statue inherits its qualities as an art-piece from other great traditions. The statue has the same level of precision, accuracy, finish and technical maturity as have eighth-ninth century Chola bronzes of South. The most outstanding aspect of the image consists in its rare emotionalism, its unique poise, level of sublimation, divine aura, sublime calm, or rather the entire bearing, and these are obviously the attributes this brass-image has inherited from the great fifth-sixth century Gupta sculptures. Though brass is its medium and ages old lost wax technique its method of casting it seeks its strength, protection against rusting, finish and lustre by mixing a certain percentage of copper with brass. The image proper has been installed on a lotus ‘pitha’ – pedestal consisting of a pair of lotus mouldings, one upward and other inverted.

This description by Prof. P.C. Jain and Dr Daljeet. Prof. Jain specializes on the aesthetics of ancient Indian literature. Dr Daljeet is the chief curator of the Visual Arts Gallery at the National Museum of India, New Delhi. They have both collaborated on numerous books on Indian art and culture.

Testimonials
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 :)

Probir, UAE
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.
