Sleeping Buddha

The stone carvings along the Baoding Hill were
hewn out from 1174-1249. The row is 500
meters long and consists of 10,000 statues.
The most distinctive are the Thousand Arm
Goddess of Mercy and the 31 meter Sleeping
The carvings relate the story of man who enters the path of self-knowledge. We are shown
aspects of our lower natures and with the full
awareness of ourselves, we too can attain Nervana as did Buddha. Posted by Picasa
