votive hinoki wood carving by an accomplished artist. Depicting the Immovable Buddha standing on a boulder
engulfing in the wisdom fire. The Angry Buddha is holding a vajra-hilt sword in his right hand that cut through all
negative emotions, and in his left hand is a rope with handcuffs that bind men of ignorance; a mean by which leads
them to enlightenment. The carving is distinguished by the explicit power of the deity implicitly enveloped inside a
curved leaf-like nimbus, which is effectively shaped into a fire phoenix by the carver’s able hands and the spiritual
commitment, an essential quality that makes this statue highly compelling, and a one-of-a-kind among newer manufactured
prototype. The hinoki carving is signed Keiun, and dated Showa 22nd year. So precisely the statue is 71 years of age and
is in excellent condition.
The name Fudo Myoo means motionless or unshakable like that of a mountain. It is a Japanese name for the Vajrayana Buddha
Acala. In Sanskrit, his name means Conqueror of Three Poisons. He is capable of transforming love, hatred, and ignorance
into energy that leading to enlightenment even in a single lifetime. As guardian of the Buddhist faith, Fudo Myoo is the
wrathful manifestation of the Buddha Mahavairocana. One of the Five Great Kings of Light. He represents the beginning of
the spiritual quest, the awakening of the Bodhicitta ??? and the beginning of compassion for all lives.
