JOWO RINPOCHE OR BUDDHA SHAKYAMUNI STATUE :-
This Statue is the replica of Jowo Rinpoche Or Buddha Shakyamuni of Jokhang Temple, Lhasa, Tibet. The Buddha is often depicted in different positions. Buddhist figures communicate with hand and body gestures. Shakyamuni’s right hand reaches down to touch the earth. This gesture represents the moment when he called the earth to witness his transcendence of the realm of Mara, the supreme God of the world (samsara), who had tried to distract him from his meditation. In response, the earth trembled and shook to acknowledge Shakyamuni’s attainment of Buddhahood. Shakyamuni’s left hand rests in his lap in the gesture of meditation, and holds his alms bowl.
The legend says that Buddha was born with skin that glowed like the sun. Because of this legend statues of Buddha are often painted golden.
