One day hew was out walking in the forest with his cousin who shot a swan while it was in flight.

The swan fell to the ground and Siddhartha ran towards it and found that it was still alive, he pulled the arrow from it's wing. His cousin Devadatta caim to claim the swan but Prince Siddhartha refused to give it to him, this made his cousin very angry and he demanded Siddhartha give it to him.

So they went to visit the Sage, upon hearing the story of how Devadatta shot the swan and how Siddhartha saved the swan the Sage said.

A life must belong to he who tries to save it, a life cannot belong to one who is trying to destroy it.

Buddha - Segan Semui - In

  • Description

Large Standing
Brass Buddha

Mudras are a non-verbal mode of communication and self-expression, consisting of hand gestures and finger-postures. They are symbolic sign based finger patterns taking the place, but retaining the efficacy of the spoken word, and are used to evoke in the mind ideas symbolizing divine powers or the deities themselves. The composition of a mudra is based on certain movements of the fingers; in other words, they constitute a highly stylized form of gestureal communication. It is an external expression of 'inner resolve', suggesting that such non-verbal communications are more powerful than the spoken word.
A mudra is used not only to illustrate and emphasize the meaning of an esoteric ritual. It also gives significance to a sculptural image, a dance movement, or a meditative pose, intensifying their potency. In its highest form, it is a magical art of symbolical gestures through which the invisible forces may operate on the earthly sphere.
Here the Buddha, standing upon a doubly auspicious lotus pedestal, makes with his right hand the Abhaya Mudra. Abhaya in Sanskrit means fearlessness. Thus this mudra symbolizes protection, peace, and the dispelling of fear. It is made with the right hand raised to shoulder height, the arm crooked, the palm of the hand facing outward, and the fingers upright and joined. In Thailand and Laos, this mudra is associated with the movement of the walking Buddha (also called 'the Buddha placing his footprint'). It is nearly always used in images showing the Buddha upright, either immobile with the feet joined, or walking (as in this case).
This mudra, which initially appears to be a natural gesture, was probably used from prehistoric times as a sign of good intentions - the hand raised and unarmed proposes friendship, or at least peace; since antiquity, it was also a gesture asserting power, as with the magna manus of the Roman Emperors who legislated and gave peace at the same time.
Buddhist tradition itself has an interesting legend behind this mudra:
Devadatta, a cousin of the Buddha, through jealousy caused a schism to be caused among the disciples of Buddha. As Devadatta's pride increased, he attempted to murder the Buddha. One of his schemes involved loosing a rampaging elephant into the Buddha's path. But as the elephant approached him, Buddha displayed the Abhaya mudra, which immediately calmed the animal. Accordingly, it indicates not only the appeasement of the senses, but also the absence of fear.
With his left hand the Buddha makes the Varada mudra, which symbolizes charity, compassion and boon-granting. This mudra is rarely used alone, but usually in combination with another made with the right hand, most often the Abhaya mudra, as in this sculpture. This combination of Abhaya and Varada mudras is called Segan Semui-in or Yogan Semui-in in Japan.

Crowned Buddha.02

  • Description

Sambhogakaya
Large Brass Statue

An early development in Indian Buddhist iconography was the 'Crowned Buddha.' In these images the Buddha is not shown wearing the monk's robe and the close-cropped hair of a mendicant, but the diadem-crown and jewelled ornaments of a king. This iconographic type were extremely popular in the Bodhgaya region during the Pala period, and from there this unique aesthetic ideal later migrated to Tibet and Nepal.

Measures: 86 x 58 x 41 centimetres or (34 x 23 x 16 inches)

The Crowned Buddha symbolizes the Beatific Body (Sambhogakaya) form of Buddha. Among the Three Bodies of the Buddha, the Emanation Body (Nirmanakaya), the Beatific Body (Sambhogakaya), and the Truth Body (Dharmakaya), this represents the manifestation of the Buddha visible to those of greatly purified mind, such as tenth-stage Bodhisattvas. This form was made especially important in Tibet from the first Great Prayer Festival in 1409.
