Shakyamuni In Colorado (Canvas Print) – Faith Stone
Buddha Shakyamuni in a Colorado setting with a moose and meditation temple.
Shakyamuni Buddha is the historical Buddha. He is shown with his right hand extending downward in the “calling the earth to witness” mudra. At the time of his enlightenment he is said to have touched his hand to the ground and called the earth to witness.
Shakyamuni wears Nirmanakaya robes- without adornment. These are the robes still worn by Tibetan Buddhist monks today. He holds a begging bowl taking what is offered. He taught the middle way between indulgence and renunciation. His philosophy is the path of loving-kindness.
