This is a lovely key chain amulet with an exquisite image of the Shakyamuni Buddha seated on a lotus throne against a circular radiating backdrop. The wonderful Buddha is depicted in “touching the earth” or Bhumisparsha mudra which calls upon the earth to witness Shakyamuni Buddha’s enlightenment whilst an alms bowl sits on his lap.
Shakyamuni is an honorific of Siddhattha Gautama, the historical Buddha, meaning “Sage of the Shakyans,” the Shakyans being the tribal republic where the Buddha-to-be was born. Shakyamuni Buddha, the most recent Buddha to appear in our world is the key figure in Buddhism. Gautama Buddha was a spiritual teacher in the ancient Indian subcontinent and the historical founder of Buddhism. He is universally recognized by Buddhists as the Supreme Buddha of our age. Even though he was born into a privileged family, his quest for the truth behind life and death resulted in a transformative spiritual change that led him to claim the name of Buddha. Buddha attained divine knowledge or “Bodhi” after six years of fasting and meditation. After enlightenment, Buddha shared his wisdom with all who asked.
