More Shakyamuni Buddha at Nanjing China

The word Buddha means “Awakened One” – hence he is depicted with light – which illuminates any spot, no matter how long that spot has been dark for.

When we are ignorant and deluded, our minds are dark and dull. When we finally understand things – our minds are clear and radiant.

So Buddha really means that which is awake, wise and free from delusion within us all. Our own Buddha Nature.
