While words may point to the essence of the Buddha’s teachings, they can never truly capture the profundity of them. It is only through the experience of insight that arises in meditation that we have any hope of understanding at least a modicum of these teachings. This painting depicted the great 8th-century granite Buddha inside Sokkuram (Seokguram) grotto at Pulguksa in Korea (North Kyongsang Province, Korea, United Silla Period). The massive body is adorned with a simple but naturalistically carved robe. His right hand is held in the earth-touching gesture often used to refer to the crucial moment when Shakyamuni successfully defended his right to seek enlightenment against the forces of evil; this suggests that the Buddha is Shakyamuni.
