Buddha Statues

Mahayana Buddhists believe that the Buddhas that have been and that will be are more numerous than the grains of sand on the banks of the Ganges. Buddha Sakyamuni is the Buddha of our era, having removed all obscurations to become fully awake. Maitreya Buddha is the coming Buddha. There are twenty-four mythical Buddhas, five Dhyani Buddhas... it's complicated. Buddha can also be considered not as a being, but as the embodiment of the spiritual principle of enlightenment.
