Mahaparinirvana Buddha

Mahaparinirvana Buddha

Mahaparinirvana Buddha

On a raised platform laid over with a stretch of saffron-coloured silk lies the Buddha. The brocaded robe and sashes on His person are indicative of His absolute glory as opposed to material well-being. The composure of His handsome, aged countenance is one of equanimity stemming from profound wisdom. In sharp contrast to the same is the collective stance of the disciples who surround His deathbed - upon the final moments of their beloved teacher, they are breaking down in inconsolable grief.

Mahaparinirvana is the final stage in the life of the Buddha. It is His moment of transition from the earthly to the ethereal, from the seemingly material to the purely absolute, from life to liberation. The superbly detailed thangka that you see on this page depicts Sage Gautama as He lies on one side, surrounded by disciples who have come from all over the world to be with Him at this stage. From the garments on each of the figures in this painting to the elements of nature and architecture, this composition bears all the signs of Buddhist devotional art.

The first thing that occurs to the discerning art viewer is the sheer number of stoopas in the foreground. They are an inimitable pristine colour that reflects the cerulean heavens above. Hints of a deep blue stream are to be found amidst the same, punctuating the pale-coloured verdure of the Himalayan landscape. Along the midline of the painting is a luxuriant canopy surrounded by crimson clouds, symbolic of the Bodhi tree of the Buddha.

Traveling great distances to disseminate his teachings, Buddha finally reached the city of Kushinagara, where he asked his disciples to spread a couch for him in a grove. He lay there, reclining on his right side, facing west, with his head supported by his hand.

Shakyamuni realized clearly that death was approaching. His last sermon was as follows:: "All composite things are by nature impermanent. Work out your salvation with diligence." The Mahaparinibbana Sutra, a standard Pali canonical account, recalls the deathbed scene. The gods Brahma and Indra recited poems. Gods and men wept. "Too soon has the exalted one died!" they cried. "Too soon has the Happy One passed away! Too soon has the light gone out of the world!"

Towards midnight of the same day, the event known in Buddhist terminology as the Parinirvana, or "Final Nirvana," took place. It was a full-moon night and also his eightieth birthday. The Enlightened One passed through progressively higher planes of meditation until he attained entry into Parinirvana.

The death of a truly great man often marks the beginning rather than the end of an era in terms of the progress of human spirit. The difference lies in whether that man lived essentially for his own glory or devoted his life to the pursuit of eternal principles of truth and to the true happiness of all mankind. The image of the dying Buddha is not supposed to evoke sadness as much as a feeling that all beings have the potential to become enlightened and attain release from the sufferings which characterize samsara. His serene, composed, and restful demeanor (he is actually slightly smiling) is meant to communicate his attainment of the highest state of Indian meditation, that of a deep, quiet and blissful sleep known in Sanskrit as 'turiya.' This is precisely the reason why 'Parinirvana' is thought of as the 'final' or 'highest' nirvana.
