Born with the name of Siddhartha Gautama, Buddha was a teacher, a philosopher, and an ascetic of the 6th century BC India. He is the founder of the world religion of Buddhism and moved by the sufferings of the world, he executed great renunciation. He was then awakened to study the cycle of rebirth, craving, suffering, and ignorance, and how these can be evaded. The Dharmachakra mudra is one of the most paramount moments in Buddha’s life as it was the time he preached his companions the first sermon after his enlightenment at Sarnath.
In this Sculpture, Buddha is meditating in Dharmachakra mudra, which is a very prominent moment in his life and known as the gesture of teaching the Wheel of Dharma. It is formed when the thumb and index finger of both hands touch at their tips to form a circle, which metaphysically means the union of method and wisdom. There are 3 lines on his neck symbolizing vital disciplines – conduct, concentration, and wisdom. This brass-made sculpture is sitting cross-legged on a beautifully designed double-layered pedestal with lotus petals, on the backside of which ‘Maata Tadarth” is inscribed, literally translating into “Mother and Hoc.” Peace is a state of mind that is directly linked to the energy of the space we live in and Buddha Statues are the dependable icons for a tranquil and harmonious space, and thus, his sculptures can be kept at the entrance door, the living room, in the garden, and the meditation room.
