9ft Jade Buddha!

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

On March 15-24, a 9 foot tall (2.6 meters) “Jade Buddha for Universal Peace” will be arriving in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!

The Buddha Shakyamuni statue was carved out from an incredible boulder of nephrite jade, discovered in 2000 in Canada. It was 18 tonnes, and many experts called the jade boulder a bonafide rarity as it was just so rare to find such good quality jade of that size.

It was then split into two, where one half was used to carve out a 4 tonne (4,000 kg) Buddha Shakyamuni statue! The artists were Australian Buddhists Ian and Judy Green, and they based the statue design on an existing one at the Mahabodhi Stupa in Bodhgaya, India.

It took 5 years to carve, but look at the pictures below. It is stunning and meritorious for everyone involved. Do go and pay your respects to this holy image.

PETALING JAYA: The famed Jade Buddha – a 2.6m-tall jade statue, which is also the largest gemstone Buddha statue in the world – will be on exhibition in Kuala Lumpur.

The four-tonne (4,000kg) statue was carved out of an 18-tonne (18,000kg) pure Canadian jade boulder by Australian Buddhists Ian and Judy Green, based on the Buddha statue at the Mahabodhi Stupa in Bodh Gaya, India.

The Jade Buddha which took five years to carve, has been on a “world tour” since March 2009 to promote the message of peace, and will find its final home at the Great Stupa of Universal Compassion in Australia in about four years.

The 10-day exhibition in Kuala Lumpur, which is organised by the Hai Tao Life Foundation, will be held at the Wisma Hrih Lotus, Jalan Pahang, from March 15 to 24.

It is jointly sponsored by the Hai Tao Life Foundation, Australian Embassy and The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion Ltd.

The exhibition which is free and open to the public will be held in conjunction with the Sakyamuni Buddha Renunciation Day, which is to commemorate the day when Siddhartha Gautama Buddha became a monk. This year, it falls on March 19.

    Hai Tao Life Foundation has organised this event to exhibit the precious Buddha Shakyamuni statue.This was a beautiful and stunning Jade Buddha Shakyamuni statue made from pure Canadian jade boulder. The statue is patiently and nicely carved for about 5 years by Australian Buddhists Ian and Judy Green.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing with us the picture of this magnificent jade Buddha.

    This is truly an outstanding offering to Buddha Shakyamuni. I believe that this Buddha statue will attract alot of non Buddhist to come forth to have a glimpse of it and be blessed by it. It might even sparked up some of the non-buddhist interest in knowing more about Buddhism and some might even generate faith because of this ststue.

    This reminds me of how diverse Buddhism is, in order to attract different groups of people into Buddhism. Those that prefer simplicity and minimalistic way will go for Theravada tradition. Those who prefer magnificent and luxurious Buddha statues will be attracted to Mahayana and Vajrayana tradition. However, all of those tradition of Buddhism is the same at the core, which is Dharma. The same dharma that is being taught 2500 years ago by Buddha Shakyamuni.

  7. Vinnie Tan on Oct 3, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    Wow! The craving of the Buddha is just so pretty. It is just so precious to have a Buddha image being craved out of precious jewel like Jade. I am just so happy that this holy image has been shipped all over the world for a world tour.

  8. sweekeong on Apr 11, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    The Jade Buddha is now visiting Penang since April 6. He will be there nine days for public to make offerings and prayers. Anyone who are residing up north should not miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to take a glimpse of the Jade Buddha 🙂

    wow! The 9ft Jade Buddha statue is very stunning! I am really happy to know that people loves big Buddha statue because it is really a blessing to see Buddhas images and big Buddhas images/statues bless the surrounding and people and all the beings seen and unseen.

    The material used to carve this statue is very precious, indeed a wonderful offering. Moreover this statue is carved based on the Buddha statue at the Mahabodhi Stupa in Bodhgaya, India. More people get to see the Buddha statue in Bodhgaya without having to be there. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche! 🙂

  10. vivienne siak moi moi on Mar 21, 2013 at 11:08 am

    Have not heard of a Jade Buddha before but through friends who told me to go for the exhibition which is displaying the JADE BUDDHA. Here I would like to know if still on display, where is it held and the time open for viewing. Would appreciate very much a reply to my email. Thank you. Ami Tuo Foh

  11. Jessica Yap on Mar 20, 2013 at 1:26 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    The KP team visited the beautiful Jade Buddha in two groups and both teams found the Buddha statue truly magnificent. When we arrived, there were monks doing pujas and we were so lucky to be able to arrive at the right time. We even got the opportunity to cicumanbulate Buddha Shakyamuni’s holy relic!how wonderful! =)

    Thank you Rinpoche!

  12. William on Mar 19, 2013 at 12:54 am

    Wow, very beautiful Jade Buddha.Very beautiful and lots of effort needed to craft out this beautiful Jade Buddha 9 ft in size. thank you rinpoche for shering.

  17. jennifer on Jan 28, 2013 at 7:55 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for the information on the 9′ Jade Buddha exhibition in K.L.

    The photo of the Jade Buddha does depict the almost likeness of the magnificent Buddha in Mahabodhi Stupa in Bodhgaya . When i first saw the Buddha statue in Mahabodhi Stupa , i just could not control my tears from flowing – it was a very emotional moment seeing this particular Buddha as it was made closest to the exact image of Buddha himself ! It was the whole feeling of being in the presence of Buddha himself!!

    I will definitely go to this exhibition as we do not get opportunities like this often in Malaysia. (And it’s about time i get all blubbery and emotional – time to have a good cry of happiness !)

  18. ERIC LEE KHJB on Jan 28, 2013 at 6:39 pm

    多么庄严的佛像。 不知道为什么每一次看到庄严的佛像,心里就会感觉到无比的平静与喜悦,虽然看起来佛像好像没有什么表情,可是他由里到外所散发出来的品德,总是让我那么的钦佩,我相信这就是所谓的具足像好的缘故吧。所以,我愿生生世世能遇到佛法,能有能力修行佛法,直到证悟。

  19. Lim (KH JB) on Jan 22, 2013 at 3:21 am

    Thanks Hai Tao Life Foundation to hold this exhibition for let all Malaysian may see such holy and precious Buddha Shakyamuni.

    May all Malaysian enjoy peace, harmony and good health with the blessing of Buddha Shakyamuni. And may Dharma growth and flourish in beautiful Malaysia…

  20. Albert Ratchaga on Jan 22, 2013 at 2:07 am

    玉佛,非常壮观的佛像,晶莹剔透,漂亮极了。

    现在虽然很多人为了玉佛的美观而去参观,但也因此,佛法的种子就无形的播种在他们的内心。当某日这颗佛法的种子发芽的时候,这些人就会慢慢踏入佛法之途。可见佛陀的加持力真的非同小可。佛,就像无处不在般,无时无刻都在保佑我们,引导我们得道成佛。

    我们一定要去参观这难得一见的玉佛。期待着!!

  21. grace (KHJB) on Jan 21, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    In the wisdom words of His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama, “Peace starts within each one of us. When we have inner Peace, we can be at peace with those around us”. For endless of years, the Worlds’ enduring monuments are said to have provided us with powerful symbols, reminders of the values, different cultures have treasured most. According to Buddhist tradition, sacred objects such as statues provide a uniquely powerful means by which we can bring to mind the positive attitudes that are essential to the development of loving-kindness. Statues, religious artefacts of Buddhas’ images are used as an inspiration for creating and spreading rememberances and human qualities – for instance, loving-kindness and peace. Incommon with other spiritual paths, Buddhists wish to purify their negative past actions and develop their positive potential for future actions, so they can be of great benefit in the World. By providing inspiration, sacred object make it so easy for this to happen. Thus, it is very important to have sacred objects around us in our everyday life. Just seeing them, they make it easy to stay focused on the goals of creating this store of positive potential, enabling us to bring benefit and peace into own lives, and the lives of those around us. Eventually, they help us to achieve enlightenment.

    This is the first time I heard about Jade Buddha, and after some search on internet, this ins their website: http://jadebuddha.org.au

    This project started back in year 2003, and it took 5 years to complete. You can click on the “Fact Sheet” to find out more about this very special Buddha statue.

    Name “The Jade Buddha for Universal Peace”, may Jade Buddha bring peace and harmony to everyone!

  25. Low ksjb on Jan 20, 2013 at 11:35 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.The Jade Buddha statue is indeed remarkable as it is extremely rare to find such a large piece of jade and able to get someone to donate it for such a meritorious cause.I would certainly make the time to pay respect to such holy object when the exhibition is on.

  26. Felix Kong on Jan 20, 2013 at 11:13 pm

    Pure Jade Buddha Shakyamuni is very beautiful, i like his smiling 🙂 feel very peace 🙂 Cannot miss this opportunity to meet Jade Buddha Shakyamuni .

  27. Wah Ying on Jan 20, 2013 at 5:59 pm

    It’s magnificent! It’s good Malaysians could pay our visit to this holy image this coming March. Before coming to Kuala Lumpur, the statue has exhibited at over 60 countries in the world…

    Here are details of the exhibition on Hai Tao Life Foundation Facebook:

  28. Martin on Jan 20, 2013 at 12:10 am

    I like the idea of the beautiful statue of the Buddha going on a world tour. So many people will come to benefit by it. It is also interesting to note that Westerners are now so involved in Buddhism and the promotion of Buddhism and Buddhist-based art. To find such a rare jade boulder and then decide to carve a Buddha out of it is admirable and it shows true appreciation of the Dharma.

    All Buddha statues are beautiful but this is especially stunning. So much care and details have gone into it and it would have been a great experience for the artists.

    I would definitely like to go see it.

  29. Davin on Jan 19, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    Very beautiful Jade Buddha. Its a great blessing to see this. This is a great opportunity to offer our respect and prayers. I am looking forward to see this stunning 9ft Jade Buddha. Thank you Rinpoche for the post.

  30. Jutika on Jan 19, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    How nice to see a 9ft Jade Buddha touring the world!!! Sadly i did not know that is was coming to Malaysia and missed the chance to get lots of pictures, just by looking at this pictures just really made my jaws totally drop.

    It just wonderful how people are so talented to be able to craft a 9 ft statue totally out of Jade! Loving it totally Rinpoche!!!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing it as well as the wonderful pictures!

    Love
    Jutika

  31. Frederick Law on Jan 19, 2013 at 12:24 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for this post, would not have known that the Jade Buddha is coming to KL if not through this blog.

    It will be an eyeful to be able to see and experience the beautiful and exquisitely carved Jade Buddha Shakyamuni personally, looking at the picture alone is already very amazed with such beauty. Definitely a must see this year.

  32. Junior on Jan 18, 2013 at 9:46 pm

    Wow, very beautiful Jade Buddha.Thank you Rinpoche for the post beautiful, peaceful and stunning post of Buddha Shakyamuni.

  33. Alexis@MBF on Jan 18, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    This is the very Jade Buddha that was in Singapore last Feburary that led me to Buddhism.

    I rejoice that more people will benefit from the positive imprints. A must see!

    Sadhu, Sadhu, Sadhu.

  34. Alexis@MBF on Jan 18, 2013 at 8:31 pm

    This the very Jade Buddha exhibition that was held in Singapore on Feburary 2012 that introduced me to Buddhism.

    I rejoice that more people will benefit by the positive imprints!
    A must see!

    Sadhu, Sadhu, Sadhu.

  35. Darren Kechara on Jan 18, 2013 at 6:24 pm

    Very beautiful and lots of effort needed to craft out this beautiful Jade Buddha 9 ft in size. Wonderful work of Hai Tao Life Foundation, Australian Embassy and The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion Ltd. to promote world peace message.

  36. Lester Lim on Jan 18, 2013 at 10:11 am

    May whoever behold the jade Buddha gain great bliss and swiftly attain enlightenment.

  37. Girlie Ooi on Jan 18, 2013 at 9:24 am

    Two more months to go before we get to be in His presence.

    Kechara Paradise is arranging to go in a group. We will finalise once our duty roster for March goes into planning.

  38. Adrian Cho on Jan 18, 2013 at 4:45 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this nice post and all nice picture.

    It was so beautiful of the jade Buddha 🙂 Really wanna go have a visit to have a looks of this very interesting statue and wonderful Buddha 🙂 hehe

  39. Judy Lam on Jan 18, 2013 at 1:47 am

    This Buddha Shakyamuni status in jade is stunning! We are very blessed to have the opportunity of paying home to such a beautiful statue in KL. It is without a doubt the crowd will flock to the location when it arrives. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  40. Joy on Jan 18, 2013 at 12:57 am

    Wow… this is remarkably stunning and beautiful indeed. But what’s even more remarkable is that we in Malaysia get to experience this beautiful Buddha body… we are so fortunate actually to be living in a country that is harmonious and that allows all to be spiritual. I rejoice and I’m glad to have this freedom and proud to be Malaysian because of this. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this news… will make a visit and pay homage!!!

  41. David Lai on Jan 18, 2013 at 12:09 am

    Woah! This is fantastic! I never knew a jade piece could be so big that they managed to carve a spectacular Buddha out of it. The craftsmanship is superb although the original statue at Bodhgaya did have an even more incredible aura surrounding it. I love Buddhas and I love the fact that this one is so precious and I am sure it is very holy as well.

    One thing I noticed is that the Buddha statue is universally known in interior decor to calm the surroundings down. The Buddha’s serene face and his meditative form imbues a feeling of peace, tranquility and calmness to the surroundings. That’s just a superficial feeling but the Buddha statue can have an even more powerful effect of blessing and planting spiritual imprints upon all who beholds him. This ‘seeds’ will blossom into spiritual practice in this life or future lives where one can meet the right spiritual guides and practice the Dharma.

  42. Erickksiow on Jan 18, 2013 at 12:02 am

    Would like to pay a visit, the statue is so Beautiful.

    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche. 🙂

    Best Regards : Erickksiow

  43. Andrew Boon on Jan 17, 2013 at 11:29 pm

    What a stunning piece of work! It is wonderful to know that Malaysia will be part of the leg in the World Tour. How meritorious for the people of Malaysia!

    I would certainly love to go pay homage to this Buddha when it arrives…

    It is not an easy feat to transport this really heavy 18 tonne pure jade statue.

  44. tenzin llhamo on Jan 17, 2013 at 11:09 pm

    SO BEAUTIFUL!!! I wont miss this chance! Should get Kechara Paradise colleagues to go visit together. It will be a good experience! To visit and be blessed by such a beautiful Buddha Shakyamuni! Its a must go for many. After 5 years, its worth the wait. Reminded me of the Emerald Buddha in Thailand. I heard that the Queen herself adorn the Buddha 3 times a year at a specific time. Very BEAUTIFUL as well! http://blog.aseankorea.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Emerald-Buddha.jpg

  45. Jessica Yap on Jan 17, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    This is a great opportunity for us to pay the sacred beautiful Buddha a visit or offer our respect and prayers! KP staff are planning a trip where we all go together to view this beautiful statue. Heeh can’t wait!!!!
    Thank you Ian and Judy for having such a beautiful initiative to share this spectacular piece with all of us around the world. And without admission fee too! How kind! =)
    Will defitnitely post pictures here we we do go.
    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche! Hopefully we get to go with Rinpoche too.

  46. Milly on Jan 17, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    An incredibly beautiful Shakyamuni Buddha. The Australian artists are so blessed to be able to carve such a holy image. May all who sees this holy Shakyamuni be blessed and planted with the seed of Enlightenment.

  47. MayOng on Jan 17, 2013 at 10:43 pm

    I can’t help but admire the original dark green color of this piece of jade of Buddha Shaykamuni. May all be blessed by laying their eyes upon this beautifully sculptured statue when it arrives here in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

  48. patsy on Jan 17, 2013 at 10:23 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this news. The Jade Buddha will also be on exhibition in Penang for 10 days starting 6 April.

    May all those who see and pay respect to this holy image be planted with the seed of enlightenment.

  49. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jan 17, 2013 at 10:05 pm

    This Jade Buddha if I remember correctly was in Singapore for exhibition last year, but strangely, it took one more year for it to reach Malaysia although it was just a neighbouring country.

    I think the most importance message about this 9 ft 4 tons Buddha statue lies exactly in the name – Peace. May this Buddha statue bring peace to those places where it is exhibited and arouses sense of peace in those admirers, because without peace, nothing will flourish and last long.

  50. Sharon Saw on Jan 17, 2013 at 6:22 pm

    This is really a spectacular buddha image and in jade too. It is good that this sculpture is made from a precious stone to show people how much they value a Buddha image. After all, we so often adorn ourselves in gold, diamonds and everything precious when we have nothing to adorn, while the Buddha image represents the qualities of the Buddha – of the six perfections of generosity, ethics, patience, enthusiastic perseverance, concentration and wisdom. This statue reminds me of the Emerald Buddha in Thailand which is also carved from Jadeite but much smaller scale at 45cm.

    I hope lots of people will visit the Jade Buddha when it arrives, even if it is just as a curiosity factor as they will receive Dharma imprints for the future.

  51. AdelineTan on Jan 17, 2013 at 5:37 pm

    This 9 ft Jade Buddha Shakyamuni looked so stunning! The Australian buddhists Ian an Judy Green must have tremendous merits to complete this great piece of art work and He looked exactly the same liked the one in Mahabodh Stupa in Bodh Gaya in India.Must pay homage to this holy image when He arrives in Kuala Lumpur in march to get His blessings.Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all the beautiful pictures of this magnificent Buddha Shakyamuni.

  52. Doreen Teoh on Jan 17, 2013 at 5:36 pm

    What a beautiful jade Buddha shakyamuni, it will be such a great blessings to have sight of Buddha. It is just as beautiful as the Buddha Shakyamuni in Mahabodhi Temple. Cannot wait to visit when is in Malaysia. What a great merits the sponsors gain for their contribution to this beautiful Buddha shakyamuni.

  53. Jean Mei on Jan 17, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    I was taught to offer the very best to statues e.g. paint gold on to the Buddha’s face, offer the best jewelry to adorn the statue etc.

    If we are able to offer the very best to the Buddhas, it teaches us to let go of our attachments and at the same time, we also create the causes to achieve the same qualities of a Buddha.

    Those who were part of the process in making this beautiful jade Buddha statue must generate a tremendous amount of merits. They used the best grade of jade to carve Buddha Shakyamuni out, even adding on precious rubies on His head!

    I’m really happy to see that this beautiful Buddha is on a world tour! If anyone happens to go, do send in pictures to jeanmei@tsemladrang.com.

    THANK YOU!

  54. sarah on Jan 17, 2013 at 3:46 pm

    Wow, very beautiful Jade Buddha. Truth be told, I never heard of it before although I believe it must be quite famous since there is practically a tour!

    What I’m surprised to find out is that this beautiful Buddha statue, was made in Canada! This shows that the west are starting to adopt a more spiritual life, when previously, large Buddha statues can only be founded in the East.

    Looks like I’ll find myself having a stroll there to make offerings to the Jade Buddha hehe.

  55. K T GOH on Jan 17, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the post of such a beautiful, peaceful and stunning post of Buddha Shakyamuni. Will contact the organiser how I can assist in the exhibition. During my schooldays in Penang, every year without fail, I will assist in the procession walking alongside with Buddha etc. during Wesak Day.

    Beautiful architectural and unique structures of sixty-four Yogini Temple of Hirapur, India. It is the smallest temple among the list of four major surviving 64 Yogini temples in India. The temple is beautifully well preserved, quite remarkable given the fact that this shrine is only one of a handful traditional form of Yogini temples in India that still exist. This Hirapur shrine is indeed very unique in many ways. Wish I could visit this amazing someday.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David Lai for this wonderful sharing of the sixty-four yoginis of these temples are believed to be none other than celestial dakinis in reality .

    According to Buddhism, the world in which we live and all that happens to us is a result of our past actions. Past harmful actions create unhappiness results and skilful actions create happy results. One way to purify obstacles we experience due to our past harmful action is through prayers and pujas. The power of prayers derives from the sincere motivation of the person asking for prayers, as well as the pure mind of the persons performing the prayers. It is said that prayers performed by lamas are especially powerful and effective as they are done on the basis of pure morality. There are many types of pujas which can be performed for various purposes for the dying, for the deceased and for sickness. All depending on one request and recording to one’s needs with specific problems . Removing these obstacles will help us to achieve happiness and good fortune in all our activities. We are so fortunate to learn, practice some of the pujas at Kechara Forest Retreat. Many people have truly benefited from these pujas done when with concentration and faith.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this extensive article pujas which I have better knowledge of other pujas other that what I knew.

    Born into a noble family the 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje was spiritual leader of the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. He was well respected and consulted by high lamas of other lineages. He was given many names expressing this respect, including “King of the Yogis”. Interesting short life history of a great lama.
    Lama Jigme Rinpoche an accomplished teacher of the Kagyu lineage has once said….
    “Although the 16th Karmapa appeared and acted as a human being, his mind was completely open, without any limitation. He knew everything in an instant and without having to think about it.”
    Depicted in this beautiful thangka with Dorje Shugden who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. He took the form of a Dharma protector in order to safeguard the Buddha’s teachings.

    The Buddha was a philosopher, mendicant, meditator, spiritual teacher, and religious leader who lived in ancient India. He is revered as the founder of the world religion of Buddhism. Life as a prince living in the wealthy circumstances of a noble family . In his late twenties, Prince Siddhartha encountered the “four signs” during excursions from the palace. He realized that the only way out of this suffering world of samsara was through finding and following the right spiritual path. He gave up the ascetic way of life and turned to meditation, until he reached his goal of enlightenment under the Bodhi-tree in Bodhgaya. Interesting story of who the noble prince was, the major events of his life, and the incredible legacy that he left behind for the world with the creation of Buddhism.
    In this beautiful thangka , depicted together with Dorje Shugden who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. As a dharma protector in order to safeguard the Buddha’s teachings .

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
