Samadhi statue – Sri Lanka

This is the link to the original video on Youtube. It also contains more details about the statue. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGVTL-3HZ4c

Samadhi statue is the most deftly carved statue in Sri Lanka. The face of the Samadhi statue demonstrates Lord Buddha’s features of compassion and love so accurately.

Above audio is a song about Samadhi statue, and this is my English translation of it.

Waves of love, compassion, and delight,

Pouring from the eyes ajar,

The grandeur of eternal virtues trickle,

Damping the crusty heart.

The Samadhi Buddha Statue stands,

and speaks to the world,

In the garden of Mahamewna.

As a flooding and gushing grand torrent,

As a cool refreshing streaming river,

Quenching the heat on the desert of life,

The grandeur of Lord Buddha’s virtues,

Guiding the way to the serene nirvana.

The Samadhi Buddha Statue stands,

and speaks to the world,

In the garden of Mahamewna.IMG_20180904_105534
