This collection, mostly wood carvings, represents the Spirituality found in South East Asia. You will find other images of Buddhas & Deities mixed into the pages devoted to Bronze and Antiques. The basic doctrines of early Buddhism, which remain common to all Buddhism, include the four noble truths: existence is suffering, dukkha; suffering has a cause, namely craving and attachment, Trishna; there is a cessation of suffering, which is Nirvana; and there is a path to the cessation of suffering, the eightfold path of right views, right resolve, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, and right concentration. Buddhism characteristically describes reality in terms of process and relation rather than entity or substance.
Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
