Lot 0118 Details
Vairocana Buddha sit atop a lotus pedestal. On a thousand flowers surrounding him are a thousand Sakyamuni Buddhas. Each flower supports a hundred million worlds. In each world a Sakyamuni Buddha appears. All are seated beneath a Bodhi tree, all simultaneously attain Buddhahood. All these innumerable Buddhas have Vairocana as their original body. This statue signifies wisdom, understanding, and fulfilling destiny. Both hands are held at chest level, with thumb and index fingers forming a circle. The right hand is turned palm in, while the left hand is turned palm out. As do most images of the Buddha, the Teaching Buddha depicts a particular moment in the life of the Buddha, namely, the first sermon the Buddha gave after reaching Enlightenment. This sermon was to a small group of disciples who had previously scorned the Buddha. This is a statue that is particularly appropriate for those who are either studying or are interested in learning more about spirituality. The phrase DharmaChakra is hard to translate. The word Dharma means “the way of righteousness,” while the word Chakra is usually translated as the “Universe” or as the “cosmos.” Taken together, this phrase generally is interpreted as, “putting the cosmic law of righteousness in order,” or “turning the wheel of cosmic righteousness.”.
