This statue of weeping Buddha bent over and crying into his hands is based on an ancient legend. It is said that there were once two masked warriors who repeatedly fought each other over the course of several battles. Neither one could ever defeat the other and neither could see the face of his opponent. One day, the older warrior triumphed over the younger, killing him. Upon removing his opponent’s mask, the older warrior was confronted with the face of his only son. The older warrior, who is none other than the Weeping Buddha, began crying and hiding his face in shame. It is believed that the figure of the Weeping Buddha is mourning for all the suffering and troubles in the world. Legend has it that if you rub the statue’s back, he provides strength and peace in return.
