Lord Buddha was born as a prince of the Shakya tribe, named Siddhartha Gautama. Raised and brought up with all opulence and luxury in his palace one can fantasy over, unaware of misery, sorrow, and suffering of human faces in the outside world. Married and had a son. One day Gautama ventured out of his palace, he saw three definite aspects of life each for the first time, he saw an old man, a sick man, a corpse. This scene shook him to the core, he perceived that these are inevitable fates of humans, no one can avoid. And then he saw a holy monk walking with peace and serenity in his face
All these made him find a way to overcome the universal suffering. He decamps his spiritual quest by leaving the lavish life behind.
For six long years, he followed many ascetic, extreme self-denial, self-deprivation, and self-mortification, even if following the extreme asceticism he couldn’t find the answer to his quest. So he abandoned the extremes life nor return to the luxury life instead and discover the middle way, (like neither luxury nor poverty). He sat beneath a Bodhi tree, in deep meditation, and finally achieved enlightenment.
The Namaste Buddha/Anjali Buddha widely known as praying Buddha is seen sitting on a lotus pedestal in a double lotus pose known as the Vajrasan pose. The Anjali mudra is expressed with both hands joining together near the chest by pressing the palms of the hands together. The two hands symbolize two inseparable forms of existence, spiritual and material. When it performs near the heart it represents the purity of mind body and speech.
With the gesture of namaste Buddha, one can connect to deep peace and serenity. A powerful decor as well as a gift option for your dear ones.
Placement: It is recommended to place the Anjali mudra statue at the main entrance, living room, or any other place to welcome positive energy. Also ideal for puja room and altar.
Care: The nonporous material doesn’t need much care, gently wiping the surface with a cloth is enough to keep the beauty of the statue.
