Buddha—Sanskrit for the awakened one— is an enlightened being upon whose teachings Buddhism was founded. A Buddha is one who as reached wisdom, or “Bodhi”—an intellectual and ethical ideal that can be achieved by humankind. Buddhists believe that a Buddha is born in each aeon of time, and Gotama—the sage who achieved enlightenment at Bodh Gaya under the bodhi tree—is our Buddha, and the seventh Buddha in succession.
In his form, Buddha is depicted in form seated with his legs crossed in the “lotus” position, a symbol of wisdom and spiritual growth. Buddha’s hands may appear in different symbolic gestures, or “mudras,” signifying inner peace, fearlessness or imparting of knowledge.
Prayer: Om Mani Padma Hum (“Om,” pure body, mind and speech of Buddha; “Mani,” practices that alleviate suffering, such as compassion, love and intention to achieve enlightenment; “Padma,” wisdom; “Hum,” pure unity of wisdom and Buddhist practices).
