Buddhism- a way of life

June 24, 2015 on 2:28 am | In Statue | No Comments


The Gautam Buddha’s father  name were Suddhodana, king of the Sakyast.  They lived on the Indian borders of Nepal.  His wife Maya, just before her conception had a dream in which a white elephant entered her womb. Wise men said  that her  son would become a ‘World Sovereign’  known as a “Buddha”.

Buddha said, ‘I was born to benefit all that lives. This is the last time I have been born into this world of becoming’   The teachings of the Buddha are known as Buddhism. Buddhism is mostly about ending the feeling of pain that all people feel inside. Gautama Buddha taught that pain is a part of all life. He taught that pain is because of desire. And he showed that there is a way to end desire and end pain by doing good things, not doing bad things, and training one’s mind. This is done to end pain and gain enlightenment.

Buddha is a word in the very old Nepalese and Indian languages Pali and Sanskrit which means “Enlightened one”. The word “Buddha” often means the historical Buddha named Buddha Shakyamuni (Siddhartha Gautama) but “Buddha” does not mean just one man who lived at a certain time. It is used for a type of person, the equivalent of a prophet, and Buddhists believe there have been many – that there were Buddha’s a very long time ago and there will be for a long time in the future.

This time we believes in Statue of Buddha’s because Buddhists do not believe that a Buddha is a god, but that he is a human being who has woken up and can see the true way the world works. They believe this knowledge totally changes the person. Some say this puts them beyond birth, death, and rebirth. Others think this represents the final extinction of desire. This person can help others become enlightened too. Therefore we use Buddha statue  for home decoration and hotel decoration.
