Crystal Buddha, Guanyin, The Lotus

$8,750.00

The Collection: Mortal Smile -A More Motherly Guanyin

Design Description:

Lotus-in-hand Guanyin, one of the thirty-three manifestations of the bodhisattva Guanyin (Avalokitesvara), stands on a lotus petal providing shelter from wind and rain, signifying her beneficent presence throughout the world. The abstract lotus appears to be emerging from underwater to provide a blessing and protection. Engraved on the lotus is an excerpt from the “Universal Gate” chapter of the Lotus Sutra. In addition to the compassion of the bodhisattva and the beauty of the lotus flower, this piece also conveys the meditative experience referred to in the expression “A world in a single flower, the bodhisattva in a single leaf.” The underlying motivation of the bodhisattva is to use the Buddha-dharma to benefit all sentient beings, and to nurture the lotus seed of enlightenment in every heart. For, although we may not be able to make lotus flowers bloom everywhere, we can learn to open the lotus flower in our own heart, so as to create a harmonious world for ourselves and for all beings.

持莲观音,菩萨手持莲花,站在一片莲花瓣上,就像是站在莲花花瓣上遮风避雨,莲花处处开,照顾人间,是美好意象。持莲观音也是观音菩萨三十三法相之一。作品取莲花局部,抽象与阴刻的处理,让莲花像是在水底生出,又像是在身边护持。花瓣面上刻着《观世音菩萨普门品》经文的部分文字,除了表现菩萨的慈悲之像,莲花的美好寓意,也同时将佛法中禅学境界「​一花一世界,一叶一菩提」表现出来。菩萨心繫众生、护持众生,希望通过佛法能帮助到众生,为众生挡风避雨,每个人心中都能开出朵朵莲花。就像艺术家杨惠姗想表达的:我们没有办法让莲花处处开,但却能够透过修持,让自己的心,开一朵莲花,为自己、然后为众生,造一个圆融好世界。

Guan Yin is the bodhisattva of compassion and mercy. She is venerated in Mahayana Buddhism, Vajrayana Buddhism (where she is known as Avalokitesvara), and sometimes Theravada Buddhism. She is usually shown as female but sometimes shown as male. Her full name is Guanshiyin which means "Observing the Sounds (or cries) of the World."
