- Investigation(of the nature of reality)
- The effort
Siddhartha was raised in all luxury and privileges one can dream of, unaware of any sorrow or suffering of the outside world, he married and had a son. One day he ventured out of his palace wall, there when he encountered three aspects of life when he saw an old, a sick, and a dead. He realized that it’s a human fate and no individual can escape from this, everyone will be subject to get old, sick, and dead. At the same time, he saw a holy monk who was walking with an expression of peacefulness on his face. All these incidents made him search for an answer to all the suffering a human faces. At the age of 29, he gave up his royal and lavish life and left for the spiritual quest.
For six consecutive years, he follows many practices, extreme starvation, and self-deprivation but found no result to his quest, so he found a middle way from the two extremes and sat beneath a fig tree, in deep meditation, and finally achieve enlightenment.
Mudra is essential which evokes particular ideas of his gestures significant to his life. The blessing Buddha statue is seen sitting with a double lotus pose. The right hand is raised in front of the chest, faced outward. This represents protection or a shield overcoming fear. Protection from fear, anger, and mirage. Left-hand lies up on left lap extended upward, symbolizing generosity.
As the pose of blessing Buddha gives a feeling of divine protection, so you can place him in any room or area you want positive energy/Blessing or protection. It also cures the Vaastu-related default so keeping a statue from blessing Buddha in that area may help to overcome the defect.
Placement: Keeping the Blessing Buddha statue at the entrance of your home, will help to keep all the negative and evil forces outside. Face him outside the entrance.
Care: Gentle dusting with a cloth or soft brush, enough to keep your statue away from dirt.
