Shakyamuni Buddha, the Historical Buddha Statue for Meditation
We, Vajrayana artists from Kathmandu Valley, have masterfully hand-carved Shakyamuni Buddha, the historical Buddha statue in the traditional Himalayan style. Carved out of copper, this gold gilded statue with acrylic paints exudes brilliance. The Buddha sits on a moon disc lotus with peaceful appearance and performs the "Bhumisparsa Mudra," which symbolizes the Buddha's awakening. The Buddha is shown holding an alms bowl in his right hand. Due to the use of only the finest materials, we can guarantee the quality of the statue.
It is a perfect souvenir for any devotee like yourself, can be used for Buddhist rituals, and is an excellent addition to your Altar.

Siddhartha Gautama was born as the crown prince of the mighty Shakya Kingdom and nurtured to be a king in line with his royal father's aspirations. However, when he was around 29 years old, he learned about people's tremendous pain in life. He abandoned his palace life and gave up his magnificent robes and gold to uncover the reasons for this anguish and the methods to alleviate it. After nearly six years of study, self-deprivation, and severe concentration, he achieved his aim. He had attained enlightenment (a Buddha). He claimed to have then proceeded to a deer park in Sarnath (Benares), India, on the outskirts of Varanasi.
