Buddhas of the Three Treasures - Present Mindfulness
Buddha embodies compassion and wisdom, and the Buddha sculpture is a reminder for all of us to love and to care. “Present Mindfulness” is a set of three Buddhas: Amitabha Buddha, Shakyamuni Buddha and Medicine Buddha, representing the past, the present and the future of cultivating peace. They remind us that the past is understood through learning, and the present is understood through cultivation. This gives us a grasp of the future and releases us from apprehension. In Buddism, Amitabha Buddha of Infinite Light sits on top of a lotus seat and holds a lotus symbol, which signifies that his compassion and love have taken everyone to the Pure Land of Bliss. Lotus flower is a symbol of purity, and praying to Amitabha Buddha is for cultivating the mind of clarity.
Shakyamuni Buddha, Medicine Buddha and Amitabha Buddha, are the past, present and future of cultivating peace. It reminds us that the past is understood through learning and the present is understood through cultivation. This gives us a grasp on the future and releases us from apprehension.
