An Exhaustive Collection of
Buddhist art from India, Nepal and Tibet.
An awesome and complex image of breathtaking splendor is that of Kuan Yin, with
one thousand arms, the latter arranged symmetrically around her like a
resplendent mandala, seated on a multi-layered, well-crafted lotus pedestal.
The lissome Tara, standing on an inverted padma pedestal, gracefully sprints,
her left leg forward, eager to reach out to her beloved devotees. Befittingly is
the future Buddha named Maitreya, derived from the Sanskrit word for
friendliness (maitri). Seated on his throne, with legs pendant in the European
fashion, he truly is a sympathetic friend of humanity, who will descend to earth
to again turn the wheel of law, re-establishing Dharma in the process.
A Japanese Buddha on a high multi-tiered seat, with an intricately carved
lattice as an aureole and a lithe Green Tara, sparsely dressed and ornamented,
but with an elaborate and high, neatly wound coiffure.
Also gracing the Buddhist Art Gallery are two fine images of the venerable
Buddha, displaying the Abhaya mudra. The first is in wood and the other in
sand-stone. Created by the skilled hands of Shri Ram Chandra Gaur of Bodhgaya,
both carvings radiate an aura of infinite peacefulness, ably emphasized by
Buddha's calm, introspective demeanour.
