Buddha Shakyamuni, Siddhartha Gautama, was born between the 5th and the 6th century BC in Lumbini, now located in Nepal. Siddhartha Gautama was born into a royal family, and as a youth and young adult he lived a very sheltered and pampered life. In his late 20s, he was shocked to witness for the first time the sufferings of birth, sickness, old age, and death. Afterwards he resolved to give up his royal birthright to find solutions to these sufferings afflicting all living beings.
Buddha showed the path that leads to the experience of awakening and liberation from suffering. This demonstrates clearly his limitless compassion and loving-kindness towards all beings who are looking for liberation and freedom from the realms of samsaric existence.
His mantra is: OM MUNI MUNI MAHA MUNI SHAKAMUNIYE SOHA
The statue has been filled with mantra rolls, precious stones and incense and was blessed by the revered monks in a blessing ceremony at the "Temple of Heaven on Earth" in Albagnano, Italy.
