Description

Sakayamuni Buddha was born about 2549 years ago in Lumbini, Nepal. He was known as Siddhartha Gautama, a prince, and son of King Suddhodana and Queen Mayadevi. At the age of 29, he renounced the luxury of his royal heritage to take up the life of a religious wanderer.

He submitted himself to rigorous and extreme ascetic practices, putting forth a superhuman struggle for six strenuous years. At the age of 35, after gaining profound insight into the true nature of reality (Dharma), he attained complete enlightenment. For the remainder of his life, living as the perfect embodiment of all the virtues he preached, the Buddha (‘Awakened One’) traveled widely teaching the Dharma.

Teaching Buddhism

He offered his teachings to men, women, and children from all walks of life so they could also end suffering and attain awakening. The Buddha Sakyamuni, at the moment of enlightenment, invoked the earth as the witness, as indicated by the fingers of his right hand, which spread downward in Bhumisparshana Mudra, the “gesture of touching the earth.” As the Buddhist Sutras relate, the sun and moon stood still, and all the creatures of the world came to offer obeisance to the Supreme One who had broken through the boundaries of egocentric existence.

All Buddhist art celebrates this supreme moment and leads the viewer toward the Buddha’s stylized footprints served as supports for contemplating what was ultimately beyond words or form. As the possibility he presented. “Don’t look at me,” he said, “but to the enlightened state.” The first anthropomorphic representations of the Buddha are said to have been drawn on canvas from rays of golden light emanating from his body.

Later Buddhist art pictured the Buddha in numerous manifestations, but always as an archetype of human potential, never as a historically identifiable person.

All forms of the Buddha, however, are commonly shown seated on a lotus throne, a symbol of the open space, so too does the mind rise through the discord of its own experience to blossom in the boundlessness of unconditional awareness.

Buddhism originates in the teachings of Shakyamuni (Gautama Siddartha), who was born in what is now Nepal some 2,500 years ago. Shakyamuni was born a prince, but from a young age he became aware of and was profoundly troubled by the problem of human suffering. He became increasingly possessed by a longing to abandon the secular world and go out in search of a solution to the inherent sufferings of life. Buddhist scriptures describe four encounters which served to awaken in him an awareness of four sufferings common to all people—birth, aging, sickness and death—and a desire to seek their solution. Eventually he renounced his princely status and embarked on a spiritual quest to understand how human suffering could be overcome.
