How are happy buddha statue sculptures used?

  • Tibetan sacred art always serves a religious function. This sculpture, like most Tibetan art, may be used in meditation as an aid to visualize Buddha’s moment of enlightenment, one’s own enlightenment, as well as that of all other beings
  • The sacred sculpture gives the practitioner direct access to the Buddha once it is ritually empowered as an embodiment of the Buddha.
  • It may then receive the obeisance, offerings, confessions and prayers of every variety from the practitioner. These sacred images take a place of honour on a altar, whether at home or in a monastery. There they become a focal point for meditation and ritual 

Pouring water over statues

  • The legend said that while Gautama happy buddha statue was teaching the Maha Prajna Paramita Sutra, the jealous Devadatta threw rocks at the Buddha. But instead, the rocks hit White and Yellow Jambhalas.
  • Buddha then came over to Jambhala and blessed him; from his hand came a white, nectar-like substance of wisdom and compassion and love, and touched Jambhala’s head.
  • Jambhala felt very blissful, happy, calm, and cleaned his impurities and obstructions, and his wounds. Jambhala immediately bowed down to Buddha and thanked him.
  • Buddha said to him, “As I have healed you and I poured this holy nectar onto you, in the future any one of my students or student’s students who invokes your power and pours water onto your head – bestow on them wealth, give them the two types of wealth, material wealth and spiritual wealth, more importantly spiritual wealth.”
  • After that, Jambhala folded his hands and said, “I will do as you have said and I promise that I will do that
  • That story has become the basis for the practitioners of Jambhala Puja to pour water over their statues or to place their statues under the falling water
