Wonderful Buddha Jadeite Glass AB Crystals Vintage Brooch Pin.
Dating from the 1960s, a wonderful figural of a green glass Jadeite Buddha set in an elaborate scalloped gold tone frame with AB coated stones that are clear and sparkly. They pick up wonderful colors in the light (unfortunately my pictures couldnt capture it but much more wonderful in person).
Around the horseshoe of AB stones is another scallope horseshoe. There is also a faux Pearl in the center. Although unsigned, it is very reminiscent of the Buddha pins designed by Hattie Carnegie. Looks as if it were never worn. Fresh from an estate.
The life story of the Buddha begins in Lumbini, near the border of Nepal and India, about 2,600 years ago, where the man Siddharta Gautama was born.
Although born a prince, he realized that conditioned experiences could not provide lasting happiness or protection from suffering. After a long spiritual search he went into deep meditation, where he realized the nature of mind. He achieved the state of unconditional and lasting happiness: the state of enlightenment, of buddhahood. This state of mind is free from disturbing emotions and expresses itself through fearlessness, joy and active compassion. For the rest of his life, the Buddha taught anyone who asked how they could reach the same state.
“I teach because you and all beings want to have happiness and want to avoid suffering. I teach the way things are.”
– The Buddha
