ITEM #: TD1479t Buddha in Turquoise Dressing Gown Ornament by Kurt Adler
Material: Glass & Glitter
This is the position that is most often associated with Buddha. Buddha is not a God but an individual who renounced his normal life as a prince because he realized that his conditioned kind of life could not provide lasting happiness. After a spiritual journey, he meditated to become enlightened and was freed from fear and disturbing emotions. And so he devoted himself to enlightenment and spent the rest of his life helping anyone that asked how to reach this same state. These are the teachings upon which Buddhism was founded. The word "Buddha" is a title given to 'one who is awake' because they have awoken to the sense of reality. This Buddha ornament dressed in an elaborate turquoise dressing gown sits in a state of repose and would be a terrific for anyone who loves the teachings of Buddha.
