Buddha Sanyasa


Media Type: Acrylic on Paper
Size: 18 Inches X 24 Inches

This painting depicts Buddha (Siddhartha) path to achieving Nirvana through renunciation of the worldly pleasures and becoming a wandering ascetic in search of real truth. The true dichotomy of the scene depicts the joy of finding true enlightenment through meditation versus the pain and suffering his family endures. To achieve any dream sometimes much is sacrificed and sometimes it’s not just the individual who pays the price. Buddha’s family suffered the loss of a father and a husband and paid a huge price for one individual’s personal journey.
