Buddha Through the Ages as Portrayed by Many Cultures
It was an unexpected delight to further my photographic collection of Buddha images in London, England, at the Victoria and Albert Museum. The delicate sculptures of the Buddha are small, but elegant and stunning!
Each expression of Buddha glows with gentle kindness. The mudra, or meaningful hand gestures, tell of the teachings of the Buddha.
These ancient figurines of Buddha were of bronze or other metal, and so they have survived. This is a lovely collection in a museum that is, in all ways, astonishing.
We missed the Radiant Buddha, which was not on display....... and so I must return to London and the Victoria and Albert museum to view this famous depiction of the Buddha.
Enjoy these beautiful images....
“We will develop and cultivate the liberation of mind by lovingkindness, make it our vehicle, make it our basis, stabilize it, exercise ourselves in it, and fully perfect it.” The Buddha
