Siddhārtha Gautama (Buddha) was a spiritual teacher from the Indian subcontinent, on whose teachings Buddhism was founded. In most Buddhist traditions, he is regarded as the Supreme Buddha of our age. The word "Buddha" means "awakened one" or "the enlightened one." According to archeological findings and inscriptions, Buddha was born in Lumbini in modern Nepal. He spread his teaching throughout Eastern India, from where it spread throughout Asia.
Statues of the Buddha are revered by Buddhists and appreciated by others as well. The Buddha today has become an icon standing for peace and harmony, for a balanced life. It has been embraced by modern culture today, so that it is not unusual for a non-Buddhist house or garden to be graced by a Buddha.
At Something Special we offer Buddhas in a variety of materials, shapes and sizes. All are hand crafted works of art, many custom produced for Something Special by artisans we support in Bali, Indonesia. A Buddha makes an unforgettable gift, one that will be treasured for a lifetime. Any home or garden can be made more harmonious and beautiful with a Buddha from Something Special. Come on inside and stay awhile. Because some of the Buddhas in our shop are large and heavy, they can only be delivered in Switzerland and neighboring regions. But if you are interested in having larger statues delivered to your door directly from Bali, please contact us for special orders and wishes.
