Ushnishavijaya Enthroned in the Womb of a Stupa, dated 1510-19. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Ushnishavijaya Enthroned in the Womb of a Stupa, dated 1510-19. Creator: Unknown

Ushnishavijaya Enthroned in the Womb of a Stupa, dated 1510-19. This is one of the earliest extant images of the rarely represented Buddhist goddess Ushnishavijaya. She embodies a magical spell (dharani) recited by practitioners to reach liberation through the accumulation of merit. Multi-armed and multi-headed, Ushnishavijaya, white in color (like the autumn moon), is seated in the central stupa, flanked by red and green bodhisattvas and surrounded by the guardians of the eight directions and representations of Tara. As a manifestation of the Buddha's head protuberance, or ushnisha, she is associated with wisdom. The lowest register shows the consecration scene during the performance of the Lakshachaitya ritual, the dedication of one hundred thousand stupas

They served in India and in the World War I. Following the establishment of the independent Irish Free State in 1922, the five regiments that had their traditional recruiting grounds in the counties of the new state were disbanded.

The East Gate of the Sanchi Tope, India, 1895 Featured Print

The East Gate of the Sanchi Tope, India, 1895

The East Gate of the Sanchi Tope, India, 1895. The great stupa (or tope) of Sanchi is the most important surviving monument of the Shunga era (c185-75 BC). It consists of a large hemispherical dome which was built over an already existing stupa ascribed to the 3rd century BC from the time of the Buddhist emperor Ashoka (c269-232 BC). Four elaborately carved gateways (toranas) were added to the stupa during the 1st century BC and the eastern gateway is depicted here. From The Universal Geography with Illustrations and Maps, division XV, written by Elisee Reclus and published by Virtue & Co. Limited (London, 1895)
