To me Buddha symbolises the embodiment of living – the gold colour here being the compassion and love which surrounds all of us. We just need to channelize our mind.
The Buddha colours here reflect the 4 facets of wisdom –
- Karma (action) – the wisdom of perfect practice
- Padma (sacred lotus) – the wisdom of observation
- Ratna (jewel) – the wisdom of equanimity
- Vajra (sceptre) – the wisdom of reflection
These facets intrinsically, in a way, symbolise the human facets of envy/ jealousy, selfishness, pride and aggression and how they correlate with each other defines who we are as a person.
