This Buddha was carved out of a single piece of marble in India. Very peaceful appearance. The ring of fire behind the head and the folding in his robe is beautifully done.
Gautama Buddha, known as the Buddha or Lord Buddha, who lived in ancient India. The Buddha was born into an aristocratic family in the Shakya clan, but eventually renounced lay life. He is the founder of the world religion of Buddhism. Also revered by most Buddhist schools as a savior, the “Enlightened One”( means “Awakened One” ) who rediscovered an ancient path to release clinging and craving and escape the cycle of birth and rebirth. He taught for around 45 years and built a large following, both monastic and lay. His teaching is based on his insight into the arising of duḥkha (the unsatisfactoriness of clinging to impermanent states and things) and the ending of duhkha—the state called Nirvana (extinguishing of the three fires).
According to Buddhist tradition, after several years of mendicancy, meditation, and asceticism, he awakened to understand the mechanism which keeps people trapped in the cycle of rebirth. He taught a training of the mind that included ethical training, self-restraint, and meditative practices such as jhana and mindfulness.
