is a resonant intrinsic peace is this classic Chinese antique sitan wood Buddha.
Amida (or Amitabha) is the Buddha of infinite light. He is deeply popular throughout
China, Korea and Japan, and is central to the practice of Pure Land Buddhism.
This statue, is depicted in Amitabha’s classic stance, seated in lotus his hands
in the mudra of contemplation and meditation. The face here is classically round
and the countenance reflects deep lucid peace. It is said that from peace all
is born. It is our innate nature once we are awakened from the delusions of our
suffering, our need to hold on, to grasp. For all passes and transforms and all
form is impermanent. Empty yet full. This Buddha is in excellent condition and
communicates the depth, gravitas and beauty of the deity. (SD)
