500 Arhats

 

The exhibition centre of Sau Seng Lum is the first to exhibit the five hundred Arhats made of ceramics. This is not only the achievement of the supreme art, but also the appearance and spirit of the history of Chinese Buddhism. The 500 life like Arhats show different kinds of compassion and wisdom. Through each and every unique one of the Arhats, they speak the dharma to all from all walks of life.

The tallest statue of the Arhats in the exhibition hall is 3.5 feet in height. Each Arhat statue has a unique appearance, demeanour and body language. Five hundred Arhats represent different human beings from different parts of the world. Perhaps we can find a particular Arhat that resonates with our nature, and understand their practice experience, and follow the ways of practice on the spiritual path.
