Shakyamuni is the historical Buddha who gained enlightenment beneath the bodhi tree 2500 years ago in India, the embodiment of wisdom, compassion and energy. His mantra is “om muni muni maha muni shakyamuni shah”.

Also known as Siddhartha and Gautama Buddha he is the historical Buddha and founder of Buddhism. All the Dharma teachings flow from the Buddha and from his teaching the Sangha or spiritual community arises.

Also in this image are his two great disciples, Shariputra and Maudgalyayana, who are famous for their intellectual and mystical powers respectively. Shariputra is on the left and Maudgalyayana on his right. These two disciples were said to have been born on the same day.

The large figure of Shakyamuni sits cross-legged, making the earth-witness gesture and holding a monk’s bowl. He is seated on a moon disc placed above a multicoloured lotus.
