This stunning sculpture depicts the Buddha's flower sermon in which he wordlessly held up a lotus flower to his followers as a teaching of the dharma.  The Buddha is seated on a beautiful double lotus base infused with many Vietnamese designs.  He is dressed in winter robes that cover his whole body.  One hand is holding a lotus flower up for his followers to see and the other is in his lap in a meditation position.  The Buddhas face is calm and serene.  The sculpture is carved in two pieces, the Buddha and the base.  The milky coloring the stone adds to the ethereal beauty of the sculpture. 

The Flower Sermon:  Toward the end of his life, the Buddha took his disciples to a quiet pond for instruction. As they had done so many times before, the Buddha's followers sat in a small circle around him, and waited for the teaching.  But this time the Buddha had no words.  He reached into the muck and pulled up a lotus flower.  And he held it silently before them, its roots dripping mud and water.
The disciples were greatly confused. Buddha quietly displayed the lotus to each of them.  In turn, the disciples did their best to expound upon the meaning of the flower: what it symbollized, and how it fit into the body of Buddha's teaching.  When at last the Buddha came to his follower Mahakasyapa, the disciple suddenly understood.  He smiled and began to laugh.  Buddha handed the lotus to Mahakasyapa and began to speak.
"What can be said I have said to you," smiled the Buddha, "and what cannot be said, I have given to Mahakashyapa."
The flower sermon shows the Buddhist belief of understanding through direct experience rather than through reading of creeds and doctrine.
