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.

Speciality: Framed
This beautiful 10" frame Lord Ganesh statue is handcrafted in copper plated with half gold finished. This Ganesh statue will remove all your obstacles and bring good fortune in you life.

Lord Ganesh:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ganesh is one of the most popular guardian deities worshipped in Nepal by Hindus and Buddhists alike. Large numbers of independent temples of Ganesh are found in Kathmandu valley. Ganesh is said to be the deity of eliminator of obstacles. To begin any auspicious work or enterprise Nepalese people adore this deity with the hope that they may accomplish their work successfully by averting the obstacles if there be any. The form of Ganesh or Ganapati is described in Sadhanamala and Nispannayogavali

Ganapati rides on a mouse and is white in colour. He has an elephant face. A snake forms his sacred thread. He is four-armed. In the two right hands he carries a trisula and a laddu i.e. sweet ball and in the two left hands a parasu i.e. axe and a radish.Ganesh is said to be the son of Shiva and Parvati. It so happened once that Kumara or Kartikeyya challenged Ganesh to circumambulate the world. The winner’s prize was to be to be worshipped by the people first. Kartikeyya travelled the world with his vehicle peacock several times and was about to report this to Lord Shiva and Parvati. Ganesh then thinking that he would not be able to circumambulate the world with his tiny vehicle mouse came out with different idea. He began to circumambulate around Lord Shiva and Parvati thrice.

Lord Shiva and Parvati asked the reason for that. Ganesh replied that this triple world was not greater than his parents and circumambulating them, it is thus far more better than circumambulating the triple world. On hearing the wise answer of his son Ganesh, Lord Shiva and Parvati blessed Ganesh that he should be the first deity to be worshipped before any ritual ceremony or auspicious occasion.

Shakyamuni Buddha
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Gautam Buddha is believed to have had 550 incarnations. Many previous Buddhas and other Buddhas yet to come are known as Buddhas. To distinguish from all other Buddhas, he has been called Shakyamuni (The lion of Shakya clan), the son of king Suddhodhana and queen Mayadevi. Shakyamuni Buddha was born on 563 B.C. at Lumbini, western part of Nepal. Shakyamuni Buddha had attained “Bodhi” or knowledge after 6 years in fasting and meditation and then he was called “Buddha” as he was “the enlightened one”. Shakyamuni Buddha died at the age of 80 at Kushinagara.

This beautiful 8” Shakyamuni Buddha Statue 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.

Shakyamuni Buddh
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Shakyamuni Buddha "The Sage of the Shakya Clan, "the founder of Buddhism, was born in 623 BC as the Prince Siddhartha Gautama, who renounced the world at the age of 29 to become a monk. After six years of arduous effort, Shakyamuni Buddha discovered the middle way of training, leading to his experience of Great Awakening. Within this experience Shakyamuni Buddha discovered the Four Noble Truths; Shakyamuni Buddha continued to teach until his entry into Eternal Meditation with his death at the age of 80.

Shakyamuni Buddh
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Prince Siddharta Gautama was born more than 2,500 years ago as a prince of what is now called Lumbini in Nepal. Siddhartha Gautam was son of King Suddodhana and Mayadevi. At his birth, many special signs appeared. His father Suddodhana asked a sage living in his kingdom for advice on his son. The sage predicted that Siddhartha Gautama would become either a great King or a great spiritual teacher.

King Suddodhana wanted his son to be his successor and tried to keep his son away from all matters of life that could incline him to a spiritual life. Siddhartha Gautama usually spent his life in his father's palace, surrounded by all possible luxuries of the time. Siddhartha Gautama proved to be a special child, being quite intelligent as well as an excellent sportsman. Siddhartha Gautama married to a beautiful woman he loved, and they had a son. When Siddhartha Gautama was 29 years old, he discovered there was much suffering in the world around him. Traditionally it is explained that he suddenly recognized the problems of sickness, old age and death when visiting the city. Being shocked by the suffering of all living beings, Siddhartha Gautama decided to search for way to end it. Siddhartha Gautama left his wife and child, the palace and even his royal clothes, and started out on a spiritual quest. Siddhartha Gautama studied under various teachers and followed their practices until he mastered them all. His first teacher was Alara Kalama who taught a form of meditation leading to an exalted form of absorption called "state of no-thingness", a state without moral or cognitive dimension. Siddhartha Gautama saw this was not going to solve suffering, and continued his search. The next teacher was Udraka Ramaputra who taught him meditative absorption leading to “the state of neither perception nor non-perception”. Again, Gautama realized this was not the state he was looking for. (Both Alara and Udraka are by some scholars considered Jain followers.) Next, he tried extreme ascetic practices at Uruvilva, with five other ascetics who turned into his followers. In the end, Gautama nearly died of starvation. After about six years of searching, Siddhartha Gautama realised that just wearing down his body did not generate new insights, but rather leads to weakness and self-destruction. When he decided to give up extreme asceticism, his students left him. Seven weeks after enlightenment, the Buddha gave his first discourse in Saranath, near Varanasi. There Siddhartha Gautama – Shakyamuni Buddha taught the 4 Noble Truths. The Buddha continued to teach during his life, until passing away at the age of 80 at Kushinagar.
