Golden Meditating Muchalinda Buddha Statue

These Cambodian carvings of Lord Buddha sheltered by Muchalinda, the serpent king, have serene expressions and well proportioned facial features. While Muchalinda is present in a number of accounts of the Buddha’s life, this depiction corresponds with an episode following the Buddha’s attainment of nirvana.

While residing in the bliss of enlightenment under the Bodhi tree, heavy rains brought by the monsoon were threatening to disturb the Buddha’s meditation. Stirring from his abode at the base of the tree, Muchalinda coiled himself around Lord Buddha for seven days to shield him from the raging elements of the storm. Once the storm passed, the serpent king assumed his human form, bowed before Lord Buddha and returned to his palace. Thereafter, Muchalinda was considered the Buddha’s protector and was designated by the Enlightened One as the guardian of mantras and sacred texts. Statues symbolizing this episode of the life of Lord Buddha were omnipresent in the Angkor region of Cambodia.


Beautiful Avalokiteshvara Statue, Bodhisattva of Compassion

We have just received this absolutely beautiful Avalokiteshvara statue, known as the Bodhisattva of Compassion. This is a one of a kind masterpiece hand crafted by a Newari artisan in the small town of Patan, Nepal.

In Buddhist legend, the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara vowed to liberate all sentient beings from suffering but when he realized the magnitude of his task, his head exploded into countless pieces. His body was then reassembled by the Buddha Amitabha and the Bodhisattva Vajrapani into this omniscient form of Avalokiteshvara, with eleven heads and a thousand arms. Avalokiteshvara’s multiple tiers of heads are crowned by the fierce blue face of Vajrapani and the red face of Amitabha, symbols of uncompromising compassion and the boundless light of the awakened mind.

“Try to develop a good heart, a warm heart, a compassionate heart,” the Dalai Lama urges. “This is very important for society as well as for one’s own health and piece of mind. To reject belief in formal institutionalized religion is perfectly all right, but to reject a good heart is destructive to oneself and others.” Public Address, 1997 by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
