Gautam was born in 563 BC as the son of Shudodhana, the Sakya king. Later, he was accorded the name Buddha, which is an attribute of one who was recognized as having attained wisdom (bodhi) that cuts the darkness of ignorance and radiates illumination.

The scene depicted in this batik narrates an incident in the life of Buddha that takes place in Vaishali. Amrapali the courtesan, who contributed in her way to the splendour and luxury of the city, was under the impact of Buddha's teachings. Here, she visits him to invite him to luncheon to her house, which Buddha accepts without hesitation.

Buddha is seated on a rough pedestal under a tree. He wears a heavy monastic robe over both shoulders and the right hand seems to be raised in the conventional gesture of blessing and the other hand rests on the lap with the palm upturned, symbolic of receiving. Amrapali kneels in front of the master, in all her humility. She offers him lotus flowers as she extends him the invitation. She wears the attire and ornaments suited to a courtesan. Her elaborate hair do makes her appear more attractive.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
