Antique Thai Style Seated Bronze Rattanakosin Amitabha Buddha Statue - 21cm/8"
Measures (Height) 21cm/8"
A beautiful Thai Rattanakosin style Amitabha Buddha perfect for those searching for serenity, meditation or an antidote to desire.
This delightful Buddha is seated on a decorated Rattanakosin style throne. Lotus leafs can seen encircling the pedestal, in the adamantine posture of vajraparyankasana, the right leg over the left.
The lotus flower represents the attaining of enlightenment and the ultimate fulfilment that follows. This symbol is heavily used in Eastern religions, which is why it can appear as both a held item or a seat. Some say that as the lotus flower grows in dirty water but becomes something beautiful, it demonstrates how we must forget our attachments to the material world around us and focus on our inner spirituality in order to seek happiness.
His royal robes are draped over both shoulders. The lower helm of the robe comes all the way down so that the undercloth or skirt is completely covered.
Buddha Amitbha's hands holds a beautiful alms bowl demonstrating the charity and generosity of the Buddha.
His eyes are downcast, his compassionate face bestowing peace, blessings and inner serenity on his devotees. The Amitabha Buddha symbolizes mercy and wisdom. Tantric meditation on Amitabha is an antidote to desire. He reigns over Sukhavati (the Western paradise) which is also called the Pure Land. Those reborn in the Pure Land experience the joy of hearing Amitabha teach the dharma until they are ready to enter Nirvana.
The large ushnisha protuberance on top of his head, in the Rattanakosin style, symbolises his high level of spiritual development.
