Mini Thai Alms Bowl Buddha
Alms Collecting Buddha
Arms bent at elbows, holding an alms bowl this statue signifies compassion and caring for all beings. Contrary to what many think, monks (and the Buddha) did NOT beg for food. Instead, they collected alms. The difference is that collecting alms allows for those GIVING the alms to make merit (meaning, to acquire good karma). Devout Buddhists in Asia will prepare and give food to monks in the morning on their alms rounds.
This Buddha brings you good fortune, karma and joy.
Approx 6x4 cms. Made from resin.
