“The short story of Buddha”
THE BUDDHA temple is located at Wat Traimit, Bangkok, Thailand. If you’ve ever been to Thailand, you may have visited the temple of Buddha. Millions of people around the world ,visit this temple every year.
So, why this Buddha statue is so popular?? It has an amazing story behind it, you will love the story. It has an life changing message. when u get it, u won’t be the same person again.
At one point in its history the statue was covered with a layer of stucco and colored glass to conceal its true value and it remained in this condition for almost 200 years.
During relocation of the statue in 1955, they were moving a giant clay Buddha when one of the monks noticed a large crack in the clay. He shines his flashlight over the entire buddha, he saw something reflected back to him. His curiosity aroused, the monk used a hammer and a chisel to chip away at the clay .He knocked piece after the piece of clay the Buddha got brighter & brighter. After a hours of work, monk looked in amazement for standing in-front of huge solid golden Buddha. Finally, the plaster was chipped off and the gold Buddha is revealed.
Thailand People believed that the Buddha had been covered with clay by Thai monks several hundred years earlier to protect it from an attack by the Burmese army. In the attack, all the monks had been killed and it’s a long time until 1957 that this great treasure was actually discovered.
Now shall we compare us with this story,
Like that ,there is a Golden Buddha inside everyone that’s pure, significant & magnificent. But we concealed it with a layer of doubts, fear, guilt, poor self image of ourselves. We forget the golden buddha sleeping inside us. We also find our inner potential. It’s already right there inside each of us. It’s always been there and it’s way closer than we think. What happens over the course of our life however is that we pile layer upon layer of clay over our own Golden Buddha. The heaviest layer of clay is of our own doing — it’s our own limited thinking and our unconscious conditioning. The other layers of clay get added on from external influences .Eventually we are so laden with clay that we forget that the Golden Buddha is there all the time. we also need to reclaim our Golden Buddha. I believe that most of us are already founded that golden intent.
Let go of those doubts, guilt ,fear & mistakes made in past. Know the brilliance we have in.
“our real treasure is hidden within us .We the human beings unconsiously hide our inner gold with a layer of clay, all we need to do is uncover our gold. Have a courage to chip away at our outer shell piece by piece.”
- “Shine with love, passion, bliss.”
Imagine a world where every person could return to their natural state, their Golden Buddha. Just imagine, our higher purpose, lies not in the future, but in our past. All we need to do is start chipping away at the clay and rediscovering those things we were passionate about as we grew up.
