Tibetan Buddhist Lord Buddha, The Universal Teacher
Buddha taught samadhi, mastery over the mind, Panna, wisdom; one has to work to purify the mind - to come out of raga, i.e. craving; to come out of dosa, i.e. aversion; to come out of moha, i.e. ignorance. Like many teachers of different religions, Buddha also taught about sila, the five precepts, the panca sila, and like others he explained to people, in different ways, why they should observe sila. Buddha's object of meditation is so universal. Buddha’s four precepts being - one should not kill, should not steal, should not commit sexual misconduct, should not speak lies and yet we get intoxicated & commit all these four. Therefore don’t be a slave of the intoxicant. _x000D__x000D_This charming Bodh Gaya Buddha sculpture is exceptionally carved with best quality Gambhar wood in pale yellow.
