Tathagata - a Pali or Sanscrit word used primarily by Siddartha Gautama Buddha to refer to himself. However it also the term for one who has reached enlightenment through Buddhist principles & has as many as eight different meanings. Generally accepted is the translation one who has thus arrived. And this vivid painting from Berlin has arrived! Drawing on his knowledge of the faith & his research into the theme this is a beautiful & informed rendition of Buddha. The colours are vibrant but enable one to look deep and take the essence of tranquility from the image. This Buddha would sit happily on an altar or a home corner of peace and tranquility, giving an essence of calm & preparedness to those who stand before it.
