Shakyamuni Buddh
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Prince Siddharta Gautama was born more than 2,500 years ago as a prince of what is now called Lumbini in Nepal. Siddhartha Gautam was son of King Suddodhana and Mayadevi. At his birth, many special signs appeared. His father Suddodhana asked a sage living in his kingdom for advice on his son. The sage predicted that Siddhartha Gautama would become either a great King or a great spiritual teacher.

King Suddodhana wanted his son to be his successor and tried to keep his son away from all matters of life that could incline him to a spiritual life. Siddhartha Gautama usually spent his life in his father's palace, surrounded by all possible luxuries of the time. Siddhartha Gautama proved to be a special child, being quite intelligent as well as an excellent sportsman. Siddhartha Gautama married to a beautiful woman he loved, and they had a son. When Siddhartha Gautama was 29 years old, he discovered there was much suffering in the world around him. Traditionally it is explained that he suddenly recognized the problems of sickness, old age and death when visiting the city. Being shocked by the suffering of all living beings, Siddhartha Gautama decided to search for way to end it. Siddhartha Gautama left his wife and child, the palace and even his royal clothes, and started out on a spiritual quest. Siddhartha Gautama studied under various teachers and followed their practices until he mastered them all. His first teacher was Alara Kalama who taught a form of meditation leading to an exalted form of absorption called "state of no-thingness", a state without moral or cognitive dimension. Siddhartha Gautama saw this was not going to solve suffering, and continued his search. The next teacher was Udraka Ramaputra who taught him meditative absorption leading to “the state of neither perception nor non-perception”. Again, Gautama realized this was not the state he was looking for. (Both Alara and Udraka are by some scholars considered Jain followers.) Next, he tried extreme ascetic practices at Uruvilva, with five other ascetics who turned into his followers. In the end, Gautama nearly died of starvation. After about six years of searching, Siddhartha Gautama realised that just wearing down his body did not generate new insights, but rather leads to weakness and self-destruction. When he decided to give up extreme asceticism, his students left him. Seven weeks after enlightenment, the Buddha gave his first discourse in Saranath, near Varanasi. There Siddhartha Gautama – Shakyamuni Buddha taught the 4 Noble Truths. The Buddha continued to teach during his life, until passing away at the age of 80 at Kushinagar.

This beautiful 8” Shakyamuni Buddha Sculpture has his left hand extended in the Bhumisparsa gesture, the mudra of witness. His left hand lies in the lap with palm upward. This is the gesture of "touching the earth" or "calling the earth to witness," commemorating Buddha's victory over temptation by the demon Mara. Shakyamuni Buddha is seated on a Padmasana pedestal of lotus petals arranged in a row. This is one of the most popular portrayals of Shakyamuni – at the moment of his full enlightenment under the Bodhi tree at Bodhgaya.
