SHAKYAMUNI BUDDHA

Shakyamuni Buddha-fourth of the one thousand founding Buddhas predicted to appear during the current econ-is shown seated on a jeweled platform upon which is a variously colored lotus supporting cushions of the sun (of which only the gold-colored edge is visible) as well as the moon. Eight snow lions (two in each corner) symbolizing fearlessness support this specially prepared throne, indicating that whoever sits here possesses the fearlessness12 of a fully enlightened being. The lotus, sun and moon represent the three principal aspects of the path leading to buddha’s enlightenment: namely, renunciation of the causes of suffering, penetrative wisdom into the nature of reality, and the compassionate, altruistic motivation to benefit others. Since these three symbols appear repeatedly in Buddhist art, it is helpful to examine them more closely now.
