Butter Lamps
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the Buddhist Tradition, Butter Lamps symbolize the clarity of wisdom. Offering Butter Lamps is the most powerful offering because their light symbolizes wisdom. Just as a lamp dispels darkness, offering light from a Butter Lamp represents removing the darkness of ignorance in order to attain Buddha's luminous clear wisdom. The lamp offering is a sense offering to Buddha's eyes. Because Buddha's eyes are the eyes of the wisdom, they do not have the extremes of clarity or non – clarity. Our ordinary eyes however, are obscured by the darkness of the two defilements – gross afflictive emotional defilements and subtle habitual defilements. While the Buddha does not have desire for offerings, someone makes offerings for the purpose of their own accumulation of merit and wisdom. Through the power of this accumulation, one can remove the cataracts of our ignorance eyes in order to gain Buddha's supreme luminous wisdom eyes. When someone offers light, the results are the realization of Clear Light wisdom phenomena in this life; the clarification of dualistic mind and the dispersal of confusion and realization of Clear Light in the bardo; and the increase of wisdom in each lifetime until one has reached enlightenment. The lamp should be thoroughly cleaned and the wick made very carefully so that it is not too short or too long, too thick or too thin. The bottom part of the wick should be thicker than the top portion. The oil should be poured into the lamp very slowly, so that none overflows; the amount of oil should be the same in each lamp and not too meager.

Why Butter Lamps are Offered?

What is the meaning of Butter Lamp offering and why to offer Butter Lamps? In the Vajrayana Buddhist tradition, we accumulate merit in order to create positive short – term circumstances such as health, wealth, longevity and more deeply, to reveal our wisdom to nature. Of all the methods for accumulating merit through generosity, offering Butter Lamps is one of the best, second only to the practice of feast offering. Offering Butter Lamps creates harmony, and generates merit while promoting success, prosperity, longevity, and world peace, as well as helping to avert obstacles, pacify the upheaval of the five elements, and heal disease. When offered on behalf of the deceased, prayers are usually recited for their liberation in the Bardo and rebirth in a Pure land. People do not offer the lamps because enlightened beings need to see them. Rather, the offering of light is a means of dispelling the darkness of our own ignorance, giving rise to clarity and wisdom. People offer with the wish that their light will illuminate the lower realms and the bardo, assuaging the torment of beings who suffer in darkness. People also aspire that all beings will develop greater mental clarity in order to discover the causes of long - lasting happiness in virtuous actions of body, speech, and mind.

Traditionally, Butter Lamps are also offered as a dedication to the dead in order to guide them through the bardo by wisdom light. We can pray as well that this guide all beings of the six realms, removing their obscurations so that they may awaken to their true wisdom nature. With genuine faith and devotion, visualize that with your offerings, countless offering goddesses offer immeasurable light to all enlightened beings. Finally, we offer them so that the inner light of great knowing will arise in all beings' minds and remove the darkness of ignorance and intellectual obscurations.

Shakyamuni Buddh
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Shakyamuni Buddha is also referred to as Lord Shakya. Shakyamuni Buddha is the first recorded Buddha ("Enlightened One") who lived about more than 2500 years ago in Lumbini, Npeal. Shakyamuni Buddha was a prince named Siddhartha Gautama who renounced his claim to the throne in order to embark on a religious life, because of a deep desire to solve the questions of the four sufferings (birth, old age, sickness and death). Shakyamuni Buddha is said to have achieved enlightenment at the age of 30. Shakyamuni Buddha passed on his enlightenment to as many as possible, at first using "expedient means" and "provisional" teachings (Sutras), culminating by revealing the true eternal nature of his enlightenment in the 16th chapter of the Lotus Sutra. Shakyamuni Buddha passed away at around the age of 80.

This beautiful 8” Shakyamuni Buddha Sculpture has his left hand extended in the Bhumisparsa gesture, the mudra of witness. His left hand lies in the lap with palm upward. This is the gesture of "touching the earth" or "calling the earth to witness," commemorating Buddha's victory over temptation by the demon Mara. Shakyamuni Buddha is seated on a Padmasana pedestal of lotus petals arranged in a row. This is one of the most popular portrayals of Shakyamuni – at the moment of his full enlightenment under the Bodhi tree at Bodhgaya.

1000 Armed Avalokiteshvara
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Avalokiteshvara (Guan Yin in Chinese; Chenrezig in Tibetan; Kannon in Japanese) is the Bodhisattva of Compassion. Among the Bodhisattvas, it is Avalokiteshvara who has the largest number of forms and is perhaps the most venerated and most popular Buddhist deity. His sex, originally masculine, is sometimes considered feminine in China and Japan, although this discrimination is unsupported by any canonical text and was often considered in China and Japan as the 'mother of the human race' and, in this respect, worshipped in the form of a woman.

Among the 108 forms of Lokiteshvara, Avalokiteshvara is one who refuses to accept Nirvana since he considers such acceptance selfish in view of the ignorance of the great majority of the people who have not yet attained that stage. His sacrifice symbolizes infinite compassion (Karuna), sharing of mankind’s misery, willingness to help those in distress. Avalokiteshvara holds in his hand the indestructible jewel. He is savior and protector from danger. So, his invocation (Mantra) “OM MANI PADME HUM” is found inscribed on rocks, loose stones, prayer wheels, etc.

Avalokiteshvara is known from very early in the development of the Mahayana doctrines and, until Buddhism disappeared from India, enjoyed great favour there. His cult passed from India to South-East Asia and Java, where it met with great success, and also in Nepal, Tibet (where he arrived with Buddhism and where King Srong - Tsong Gampo, 519-650, was considered to be his incarnation), and in China, from where he went on to Korea and Japan. All these countries imagined him in different forms according to their own temperaments and spirituality.
In this form, Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva has eleven heads. There are three rows of three heads which are in the color of white (sambhogakaya), green (nirmanakaya), and red (dharmakaya). This represents the three principle aspects of buddhahood. Above these three rows is a blue wrathful face of Vajrapani and the red face of Amitabha.

In this form, Avalokiteshvara has eight main hands. The two central hands are held in a cupped gesture symbolizing an attitude of homage (In some depiction, these two hands holds a wish fulfilling jewel). Another main hand is held in an open – palm gesture symbolizing generosity. The other main hands hold five objects: a bow and arrow, lotus, vase, rosary, and eight – spooked wheel. The bow and arrow represents bodhisattva's ability to aim at the heart of all beings. The vase contains the nectar of immortality. The lotus blossom represents enlightenment. The eight – spooked wheel represents the Buddha's teaching. The aura around the painting represents his one thousand hands and symbolizing his inexhaustible compassion. In each of his hand, there is an eye (wisdom) in the center of the palm (skills) which symbolizes the union of wisdoms and skills.

Stupa or Chorten – The Basis of Offering
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stupa (Chorten in Tibetan which means "the basis of offering") is an important religious monument in Tibet. This unique religious architectural form expresses significant religious symbolism and presents Buddha's physical presence. It generally consists of three parts; a whitewashed base, a whitewashed cylinder and a crowning steeple or shaft. The square base foundation, representing the Buddha's lotus throne, symbolizes earth, the state of solidity and five forces (faith, concentration, mindfulness, perseverance and wisdom.) The four stepped base may or may not have openings. Above the base is a square or hexagon four stepped pedestal which represents The Buddha's crossed legs. Seated on the base is the cylinder, representing his torso. This symbolizes water, the state of fluidity and seven essential conditions of enlightenment: concentration, effort, equanimity, flexibility, mindfulness, joy and wisdom. Sometimes a Stupa has a shield like grillwork in one face. This allows relics of high lamas, statues and other items to be put inside. Between the cylinder and the crowning steeple, three is a square box, called Harmika, which represents the Buddha's eyes. It is considered to be the residence of the gods, symbolizing the eightfold noble path. The crowning steeple, the Buddha's crown, is usually hand - made of brass and/or covered with gold leaf. It is segmented into 13 tapering rings, a parasol and a twin symbol of the Sun and the Moon. Those rings, representing fire and the thirteen steps of enlightenment, successively symbolize ten powers of the Buddha and three close contemplations. The stylized parasol, representing wind, wards off all evil. At the top of the steeple is the twin symbol of the Sun and the Moon, which represent wisdom and method respectively. A flaming jewel may be found on the top of the twin symbol, symbolizing the highest enlightenment.

Stupa or Chorten or Chaitya, which represents the Buddhist Universe, is the Buddhist sanctuary, sometimes square and sometimes round, with spires or steps on the capital. A Stupa is a tower or steeple erected atop Hindu and Tibetan Buddhist temples. The Stupa is a symbol for the elementary organization of the universe according to Hindu cosmology. Each spire or step represents a heaven, the uppermost portion being a point which is supposed to be the highest peak of Mount Sumeru, a mythical mountain whence the Bodhichitta loses itself in sunya. It is composed of four parts (from the base, up), symbolizing the five tattwas, or elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water. On the four sides of the Stupa or Chaitya the figures of four Dhyani Buddhas; Akshobhya, Ratna Sambhava, Amitabha and Amoghasiddhi are placed. The place of Vairochana is in the centre. In some Stupa or Chaitya Vairochana is placed to the east along with Akshobhya.

Green Tara – THE PROTECTRESS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Green Tara is regarded as spiritual consort of Amoghasiddhi, the Dhyani Buddha. Green Tara is portrayed similar to that of the White Tara. One can find the difference only in her left hand which holds a half – closed lotus or water – lily flower with long petals which is often blue. In the Lamaeist Tradition, Tara is incarnated in all good women. Green Tara is also to have mortal base in historic persons of the Nepali and Chinese princess who married the great king Srong – Tsong Gampo and credited with the introduction of Buddhism to Tibet and China. Green Tara vowed "until Samsara is empty, I shall work for benefit of sentient beings in a woman's body". Green Tara is worshipped, because she brings all good women.

This 6” Green Tara is seated on a lotus rising out of a lake. Dressed in fine silk and rainbow – colored stockings, Green Tara holds in each hand a blue Utpala flower. Green Tara sits in Lalita asana (sitting position) with her right leg extended ready to assist those who ask her help.
