The similarity of the expression on the faces of the Buddha and Shiva is indeed intriguing in Indian Sculpture Art. It is equally fascinating to explore that the Buddha, a human being who refrained from talking about God later lands up being deified as one where as Shiva , a concept of divinity is given a human form! And his story unfolds the highest philosophical speculations in Indian thought! He is not just an individual God but has a whole family as well. The concept of Shiva Shakti explains the enigma of Purusha Prakriti of the Sankhya philosophy and also the Advaita Vedanta.Ganesha their son is perhaps a manifestation of the fertile imagination and faith of this ancient land. Jai ho, he is soon coming next week!
