Buddha Fancy Jasper Stone Carving
This Buddha is carved from Serpentine found in China. It is 2 inches high by 1.75 inches wide and .75 inch thick.
Serpentine is a metamorphic rock that was formed when water from magmas metamorphosed previous igneous or sedimentary rocks.
Siddhrtha Gautama was a spiritual teacher from ancient India and the founder of Buddhism. He is generally recognized by Buddhists as the Supreme Buddha. The time of his birth and death are uncertain, the majority of scholars with opinions gave dates within 20 years either side of 400 BCE for the Buddha's death.
According to tradition, the Buddha emphasized ethics and correct understanding. He questioned the average person's notions of divinity and salvation. He stated that gods are subjected to karma themselves; and the Buddha is solely a guide and teacher for the sentient beings who must tread the path of Nirvana themselves to attain the spiritual awakening called bodhi and see truth and reality as it is. The Buddhist system of insight and meditation practice is not believed to have been revealed divinely, but by the understanding of the true nature of the mind, which must be discovered by personally treading a spiritual path guided by the Buddha's teachings.
The buddha carving is a symbol of happiness, wealth, prosperity, kindness, innocence and joy. It is believed that rubbing his tummy will bring you good luck!
