Product Description

Here we see Buddha in one of his more combative positions. Because it is Buddha, he is neither armed, angry looking, nor in any way threatening. The "Calling the Earth to Witness" or "Subduing Mara" position is indicated by the fact that one of Buddha's hands is placed palm down while the other remains palm up in his lap. This comes from the tradition that while Buddha meditated under a fig tree in his quest for enlightenment he was tempted by the demon Mara to break of the search. Mara tempted Buddha with visions of beautiful women. Though Mara is the closest thing in Buddhism to a devil, he is generally regarded as more of a nuisance than an actual threat. That relationship is well shown here. Buddha does not stop meditating to deal with Mara. All that sets this pose apart from any other sitting Buddha is that the Buddha has placed a hand palm down to call of the Earth to witness his defiance of the demon. The statue is an excellent reminder that the best way to deal with many of life's problems is to simply keep on and not let them distract you from what is truly important.
