Brahma

Hinduism is the world’s oldest religion, having its origins in India more than 5000 years ago. Hindus believe in ‘Samsara’ or the cycle of birth, death and rebirth. The gods Brahma (the Creator), shown here, Vishnu (the Provider) and Shiva (the Destroyer) represent this belief. Liberation from ‘Samsara’ can only be found through the pursuit of the ultimate goal in life – ‘Moksha’. This spiritual state is achieved by performing good deeds and being devoted to God. Hindu theology views God as being one but that this one can have many manifestations of forms.

Buddhist Gong

Musical instruments such as percussion, strings, and flutes have always been a part of the Buddhist tradition. Of the many musical instruments that have played a role in Buddhism, perhaps percussion instruments are the most important. Traditional Buddhist temples, for example, all have a large Temple bell or gong found within the shrine area and smaller ‘sawari’ gongs, in the altar areas. At major gatherings, it is not unusual to hear gongs and cymbals used to introduce the Sutra (scriptural narrative).

Head of Buddha

Buddha (563?- 483?BC), Indian philosopher and the founder of Buddhism, born in Kapilavastu, India, just inside present-day Nepal. His name Gautama Buddha is a combination of the family name Gautama and the appellation Buddha, meaning “Enlightened One.”  One day in 533, according to tradition, he encountered an aged man, a sick man, and a corpse, and he suddenly realized that suffering is the common lot of humankind. He then came upon a mendicant monk, calm and serene, whereupon he determined to adopt his way of life and forsake family, wealth, and power in the quest for truth. Accompanied by disciples, Buddha traveled through the valley of the Ganges River, teaching his doctrines, gathering followers, and establishing monastic communities that admitted anyone regardless of caste. Buddha’s teachings have influenced the lives of millions of people for nearly 2500 years.

Sumo Wrestler garden ornament

Sumo Wrestler

The noble art of Sumo Wrestling, Japan’s national sport is steeped in tradition that stretches back thousands of years. It is thought to have first developed from rituals and ceremonies of the Japanese religion of Shinto as far back as the Tumulus period (250 -552). Later it was recognised as required military training.Today Sumo has developed into an exclusive sport, demonstrated in six Grand Sumo tournaments (Basho) held during the year by 72 salaried professionals, with hundreds of amateurs trying to breakthrough the ranks. The rules of Sumo are relatively simple: two large men trying to force each other out of a small circular area, encouraged by adoring fans. Beware the unwanted visitor that dares to enter the garden that this Sumo Wrestler protects!
