Fiberglass Buddha Statues
Glasspoll is offering Fiberglass Buddha statues in India and across the globe. On the other hand, we are making Buddha statues in our workshop at Kolkata.
The Buddha, whose original name was Siddhartha Gautama, was the founder of Buddhism. Buddhism, the religion and the philosophical system produced a great culture throughout much of southern and eastern Asia. Buddha statue meaning “awakened one” or “enlightened one” is a title, not a name. In Hindu Dogma, the Buddha is viewed as being the 9th avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu.
The Buddha was a son of the rulers Sakyas. Buddha was married at the age of 16 and lived in luxury and comfort sheltered from the harsh realities of life. When he was 29 he realized that men are subject to old age, sickness, and death. He became aware of the suffering inherent in existence. He resolved to give up princely life and become a wandering ascetic (Samana) in search of the Truth.
With the two samanas, he attained mystical states of elevated consciousness but he failed to find the Truth. However, he continued his search and was joined by five ascetics in a grove near Uruvela, where Buddha statue practiced sever austerities and self-mortification for six years. When he fainted away in weakness, he abandoned ascetic practices to seek his own path to Enlightenment. Discarding the teachings of his contemporaries, through meditation he achieved Enlightenment or ultimate understanding. Thereafter, the Buddha instructed his followers in the dharma (truth) and the “Middle Way” a path between worldly life and extremes of self-denial.
