It might be difficult for modern students who are interested in Buddhism to quickly grasp the symbolic significance of the numerous kinds of statuary associated with this philosophy. This book investigates the symbolism of the ceremonial objects used on statues and paintings as well as describes the ritual significance of the objects connected to Buddhism. In Buddhism, every symbol has a purpose. For Western students, this book serves as an introduction. Although it is not a thorough and laborious study, it offers an introduction to Buddhism and a generous examination of the most popular figures and symbols. The Three Mysteries, asanas, mudras, Manushri Buddhas, Transcendental Buddhas, Adibuddha, Tara, Manjushri, and Avalokiteshvara are all examined by the author. Also discussed is Yidams, Gods and Goddesses, dakinis, and yoginis, and the Laughing Buddha.
