Description
Padmasana Buddha Under The Lifelike Bodhi Tree
Few images are more calming to the psyche than that of the poorna-padmasana Buddha. He is stable and serene, exactly as has been expounded in the Paatanjala-sootra sthirasukhamaasanam. As rooted to His asana as the tree behind Him, His mind teeming with enlightenment like the tree with its multitude of branches and leaves and life. A highly characteristic reserve marks the countenance. In His hand is the medicine-bowl of Tibetan lore (not to be mistaken for the mendicant’s bowl), which makes this image as healing as it is soothing._x000D_The glamour of the Bodhi tree has been captured by the artist with not only skill but also shraddhaa. Shraddhaa, an integral part of the six-fold inner wealth of Shankaracharya, is the word for the kind of devotion that leads one to such spiritual truths and treasures. The same reflects on the high-precision finish of the tree - from the curvature of the branches to the vasculature of the leaves, it is almost quivering with life._x000D_An engraved lotus pedestal forms the seat of the Buddha figure. The inner petals are finished with a delicate silver hue, and are seemingly gathered atop a broad-based stem that bears geometric engravings. The whole composition is placed atop smooth block of wood, wherein the Buddha together with His pedestal may be repositioned.
