BUDDHA:Gautama Buddha was born in 563 b.c. in
northeast India. The Buddha was the son of the King of the Sakyas. Suddhodana,
who ruled at Kapilavastu, on the border of Nepal. His mother was Queen Maya. He
was named Siddhartha.
He lived amidst the pleasures of palace life and at age 16 he was married to
Princess Yasodhara. They had a son named Rahula. After seeing a decrepid old
man, an invalid, and an ascetic beggar, he learned of suffering and decided to
Soon afterwards, at age 29, Siddhartha left the palace and his family and went
to a hermitage where he became the monk Gautama, or, as he is still called,
Sakyamuni (The ascetic of the Sakyas).
One day, meditating under a sacred figtree, he attained perfect illumination (Bodhi).
He had become a Buddha. From there on he traveled and preached for 44 years what
was to become one of the main religions of the world. He died at Kusinagara at
Buddha 'The Buddha of Infinite Light' is a
Buddha who resides in the Pure Land of the Western Heaven where all beings enjoy
unbounded happiness. Amitabha Buddha is the most popular Buddha in Japan (known
there as Amida) and China (known there as Amitofu).
It's said that those who recite his name, particularly at the time of dying,
will be reborn in the Pure Land. According to Mahayana Buddhist Sutras he was a
king in a remote period of time. Renouncing his kingdom, he became a monk and
was named Dharmakara (Treasury of Dharma).
After observing the misery of all sentient beings, and moved by compassion, he
made 48 vows in which he promised not to attain enlightment until he established
this Pure Land where all could be liberated from their sufferings. He practised
for many eons until he accomplished all his vows.
Amitabha is a Sanscrit word, literally meaning boundless light and boundless
life. He is one of the five Dhyani Buddhas of Mahayana Buddhism. Together with
his two chief companions, Avalokiteshwara and Mahasthampraptta, they are known
as the Western Trinity. Here the mini Buddha is represented in meditation
posture with the hands together in Samadhi mudra. He usually faces the west.
The Happy Buddha and What He Holds -
Symbolism of Objects
Although you will find Happy Buddhas on nearly
any Feng Shui related site, what you won"t find is a standard meaning for
each of the Buddhas. Some sites refer to them generically as being for
prosperity and abundance; other sites attribute them to specific uses, but the
meanings are inconsistent from site to site. We have found the following to be
the most popular interpretation with the alternate interpretation in parentheses
given with the description of the Buddha.
Safe Travels (Adventurous): Stick w/bag over shoulder, holding wealth ball
Abundance (Prosperity): Hands raised above head, holding Ru-Yi pot (bowl of
Spiritual Journey (Longevity): Gourd of enlightenment hanging from stick, fan in
one hand, necklace of beads
Long Life (Happiness): Seated on bag of blessings, one hand raised holding
wealth ball, Ru-Yi pot in other hand
Love (Enlightened): Seated w/feet together, holding wealth ball, bag over
Happy Home (Tranquility): Seated w/parasol behind back
Perhaps the best way to determine what each Buddha signifies for you is to
understand the meaning of each of his symbols. It will also help you to identify
Happy Buddhas that are similar to but not exactly like those shown (and
described) in this article.
The Ru-Yi is known as the bowl of plenty (it is also the shape of Chinese
ingots) and signifies plenty, abundance, and wealth.
The bag is said to be filled with blessings (including children) that the Happy
Buddha distributes freely.
The parasol deflects misfortune, thereby offering protection.
The Buddha waves the fan to banish troubles and misfortune.
The Wu-Lou (gourd) is a symbol of longevity and good health.
The wealth ball is sometimes seen as a pearl. In China, the pearl represents
immortality, potentiality, and wisdom. Treasure dragons were believed to live in
caves deep in the earth and to possess a magical pearl that multiplied if it was
touched. This pearl was a symbol of the most valuable treasure, wisdom.
The necklace of beads is the mala, the Buddhist string of prayer beads.
