Buddha, born with the name Siddhartha Gautama, was a teacher, philosopher and spiritual leader who is considered the founder of Buddhism. He lived and taught in the region around the border of modern-day Nepal and India sometime between the 6th to 4th century B.C. The name Buddha means “one who is awakened” or “the enlightened one.” The Buddha’s seated posture refers to the moment just before he receives enlightenment. This is one the first images of the Buddha ever created. It shows him in an enlightened state, wearing monk’s robes and seated in the lotus position. In this pose, Buddha has both hands face up in the lap with legs crossed in a Double Lotus pose. Buddha’s eyes are also normally half-closed or fully closed as the statue represents focused concentration. The profile of the statue is also shaped similarly to a triangle to represent stability. This Buddha statue is great for people looking to create peace and calm in their lives. It’s also the perfect addition to a space in your home where you like to relax and unwind.
