Who is Buddha? What is the meaning of a Buddha?

Buddha isn’t God but a man just like us but big difference is he is the enlightened one. His name is Siddhartha Gautama. Buddha indicates one who has awakened towards the reality. Born in a wealthy royal family in Lumbini, Nepal around 5th century BC, younger Siddhartha was obviously a cosseted royal prince. His doting mother and father, hoping to spare his lifetime’s pain and suffering, sheltered him from anything uncomfortable that might trigger him from thinking that his life is not perfect and start wondering about finding the truth. He never knew anything about poverty, sickness, death, or perhaps any of the common day to day problems.

One day as a young man, the prince wandered off and noticed the actual enduring and sufferings of other folks first hand; he deserted his privileges to seek living of an ascetic in search of real truth and way to happiness. After many years of wandering the county-side, residing a life of deprive, Siddhartha made a decision to seek middle way. The middle way seeks and avoidance of extremes, self mortification. He thought there could be conciliation in between wretched self denial as well as lifestyle in the typical world.

After much deep meditation, Siddhartha became an enlightened one – The Buddha. His discoveries and philosophy is later termed as Buddhism.

What is Buddhism?

Buddhism is really a philosophy according to empathy to attain enlightenment known as “Nirvana.” Buddhism explains the truth that the main cause of sufferings and unhappiness is our very own condition of mind and exactly how we see things. When we initiate to purify our mind and soul with the aid of Vipassana Meditation, ultimately, achieving of evergreen happiness free from sorrow and discomfort known as “Nirvana” is possible. – Strong Belief of Amogh Shakya MD Shakya Handicraft.

One day, As per the custom, when Buddha went to Tushita Bhuwan: (Heaven according to ancient belief, where Mayadevi’s spirit resided after her death here on earth) to preach his late mother, the king could not surpass his absence so he had artisans to make the replica of him in sandalwood. The statue was made at the place where he was seated when he returned home after getting enlightenment and give his dharma discourse. It is believed The first Buddha was made like this and believed then that the statue will represent the teaching of the Buddha and be inspiration for the followers in future.

What is the meaning of a Buddha statue?

Buddha statue is a statue of an image that represents the awakened or enlightened one called “Buddha”. A Buddha statue can have different meanings depending on what type of Buddha statue it is. What Mudra or symbol does it represent? Buddha figurine is there for a reason. It is there to represent certain teachings or explain certain concepts of Buddhism. Buddha statues come in various positions and mudras (hand gestures). Each position or mudra represents certain concept of the Buddhist philosophy. It is there to educate people and remind them of the teachings of Buddha.

What does different symbols or parts of a Buddha statue represent?

Generally there are different types of Buddha Statues with different body posture, hand gestures and symbols. You can check in details under the following sections below. However in this paragraph we are discussing the symbols of a simple meditating enlightened Buddha that we most often see that is Shakyamuni Buddha. Shakyamuni is the one who got enlightened and seated in a lotus flower with legs folded and one had touching the ground.

Most of the other forms of peaceful Buddha holds the same nature, description and symbols in his body. So lets get into it and cover the different meaning of the body parts and symbols he carries. Buddha’s hair is usually short with curly  shape. It is stated in ancient stories and beliefs that Buddha when he left palace in search of truth cut his hair and never looked back and went for long meditation course. It is when after 4 years of meditation he actually got enlightened hi hair has never grown longer but remained short and curly like you will see in the Buddha heads.

The over all face should express the compassion. Buddha eyes have to be the most beautiful and compassionate one. It is always in a state of meditation with compassion looking at his disciples. Buddha ears are long representing long life and also represents the Buddhas willingness to listen to those who need and enlighten them. To learn more on this check this article out.  Why does Buddha have long ears?

Buddha’s body wears a robe Only half or parts of his body is covered with robe. So flesh is seen partially. He is seated and one hand touches ground. This position is called “Bhumisparsa Mudra” This position means that Buddha after getting enlightenment called earth as a witness to what he learned and calling himself as a Buddha . It is believed tht Buddha stayed four days under the bodhi tree revising what he learned and discovered to finally call himself a Buddha after confirmation of his discovery or enlightenment.

Hand gestures (called mudras) have different meanings, such as teaching or protection etc. We will get into more details on these below. But Shakyamni Buddha has one bowl on his hand.

A dot or tika on the forehead is called third eye that represents the wisdom he has to see this world in whole different way wisely. A full mouth represent the ability of excellent speech or verbal skills. To be able to present himself and teach and explain the concepts of his teachings or dharma.

Even arms slim fingers represents logic without emotions that leads to diagnosing or analyzing things with out prejudice. This also further explains about his mindfulness because of which Buddha can act with pure and precise mind. Having explained the general anatomy of a peaceful Buddha statue lets focus on few of the most common or popular hand gestures of a Buddha statue.

Five Dhyani Buddha Mudras or Hand Gestures.

“Mudra” is the Sanskrit word which means hand gestures and finger postures that are used in Buddhism. Such Buddha mudra is associated with the images of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas to represent different teachings and philosophy of Buddhism.

A statue or a painting of Buddha always illustrates a Mudra. Among hundreds of mudras, the five transcendental Buddha’s also called “Dhyani Buddhas” or “Pancha Buddhas” bear the most important mudras. These mudras are as follows.

  • Dharmachakra Buddha Mudra – Vairochana:

Dharmachakra Mudra has two hands held against the chest with the tips of the thumbs and forefingers of each hand united. This mudra represents a gesture of Teaching.

  • Bhumisparsa Buddha Mudra – Akshobhya:

This gesture, “touching the earth” (Bhumisparsa) Mudra, became Buddha Akshobhya’s Mudra. Buddha Shakyamuni asked mother earth to bear witness to his attainment of Enlightenment. To indicate this, he touched the earth with his right hand as witness to his perfection. Thus, this mudra is formed.

  • Varada Buddha Mudra – Ratna Sambhava:

Varada Mudra. His right hand lies open near his right knee. His left hand is seen holding an alms bowl. In Sanskrit, Varada means ‘granting a boon’. The gesture shows the right palm turned towards the receiver of boons, with the fingers pointed downwards.

  • Dhyana Buddha Mudra – Amitabha Buddha:

This Mudra has palms joined together with the right on the left, two thumb fingers touching each other. As bowl is between his two palms. Here the meditating hand gesture represents state of deep meditation and the unity of wisdom and compassion.

  • Abhaya Buddha Mudra – Amoghsiddhi :

Abhaya mudra- The hand gesture of fearlessness and protection, usually shown as the left hand with palm turned outward and all fingers extended upwards. It is taught with this hand gesture that one gains fearlessness by following the Bodhisattva path.

Each Dhyani Buddha has corresponding or relevant female deity or consort and Bodhisattva.These deities themselves have unique mudras and positions. To know more on this do check out this article “Buddha Mudra..

What are different types of buddha statues?

There are various types of them like Standing Buddha, sleeping Buddha, laughing Buddha, blessing Buddha, meditating Buddha, teaching Buddha etc. Different positions from the statues hold different meanings and teachings. You need to understand these postures before choosing the right ones for you. You can check this post on learning more about different hand gestures of a Buddha statue called “Mudras”

Why do we need to meditate? Why is it so important to meditate?

Meditation is the ultimate tool for achieving enlightenment. It is greater than Buddha himself because  without the help of meditation Buddha would not have attained enlightenment and he would not have become or called “Buddha” Meditation is the process of looking within yourself. It is about knowing yourself inside out. Just like a doctor diagnosis its patients we need to diagnose ourselves the problems within us. We need to find out what is it that is keeping us from being happy. We will find out how our mind works and what sorts of thoughts and imaginations we constantly dwell in. Please refer to this article to learn more about benefits of meditation.

Phurba and Vajrakilaya is closely related. According to wikipedia meaning of Vajrakilaya is as follows

Vajrakilaya (Skt. Vajrakīlaya; Tib. རྡོ་རྗེ་ཕུར་པ་, Dorje Phurba, Wyl. rdo rje phur pa) or Vajrakumara (Skt.
