Introduction to Shakyamuni Buddha
Shakyamuni Buddha is also known as the enlightened one who is the founder of Buddhism and its teachings. The ancient Sanskrit word 'Buddha' means 'having become awoken ' in the sense of having attained 'supreme awareness'. It is closely related to the term 'Bodhi' which refers to awareness. His main goal was to free people from their suffering. Shakyamuni Buddha's teachings are based on his insight into suffering.

How do take care of your statues?
- Place them at room temperature, avoiding direct sunlight.
- Make sure that the area where your statue is placed is completely free of moisture and dust.
- Place it at the highest place on your altar after being consecrated by Lama/monks. The best practice is to keep them covered inside a glass cabinet.
- Do not use your bare hands or any objects with a rough surface to wipe the face. Directly touching with the bare hand objects can smudge the face, leaving scratches.
