#CN-A08-1504-045

Overview

$6,699.00

Guatama Buddha, also known as Shakyamuni, or simply the Buddha, was a sage who initiated Buddhist teachings. He was born into a royal family in Lumbini, now located in Nepal, around 500 BC. The word Buddha means “awakened one” or “the enlightened one”. After he was enlightened at the age of 35, the Buddha spent the rest of his life teaching principles of Buddhism. This piece of embroidery shows a teaching Buddha with an alm in his left hand and Vitarka Mudra of the right. The Vitarka Mudra, the gesture of discussion and transmission of Buddhist teaching, promotes the energy of teaching and of discussion and helps to prevent us from entering argumentative states of mind. Vitarka means “Discussion” in Sanskrit. Vitarka Mudra, then is the “Gesture of Discussion.”

Using gold thread to pay homage to Buddha, it is embroidered onto a delicate piece of midnight blue satin for a sense of meditative serenity. A demonstration of her extraordinary skills, it took embroidery master Yang Huazhen five months to finish the Tangka. It is a remarkable mantelpiece for your home and since the devotion is sewn from within, it could be a reflection of your inner nature.
