PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF JOHN MANN, SOLD TO BENEFIT THE CENTER OF SPIRITUAL AWAKENING
Shakyamuni represents our mundane world, while Amitabha presides over Sukhavati, the Pure Land of the West, and Bhaisajyaguru the Pure Land of the East. Amitabha is the most popular buddha in Chinese Pure Land Buddhism. Recitation of his name is believed to aid one's rebirth into his Pure Land.
A feature of the present lot more commonly seen on East Asian Buddha figures is the large jewel located at the base of the ushnisha . It symbolizes the unsurpassed Enlightenment of the Buddha and radiates the light of wisdom. In some Buddhist sutras an infinite number of buddhas are said to emanate from the ushnisha.
