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. Medicine Buddha, though, is named for his healing power to eradicate illness of life and death, but he not only cures all beings of their bodily pain and disease but also heals their incomplete hearts and minds. Praying to Medicine Buddha is for healing and good health.
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.
