Eyes in Buddhism
On the stupas or shrines of Nepal is found a symbol known as the Eyes of Buddha, it appears to be a pair of eyes with a small dot in between. According to Buddhist teachings greed, hatred, and delusion cause suffering in the world. Only by focusing on ridding oneself of these traits can a person hope to obtain a higher realm upon reincarnation. Buddhist symbols for greed include mirrors, eyes, and the power of vision. The Eyes of Buddha serve as a reminder to Buddhists to behave ethically, meditate, and make ritual offerings in order to eliminate greed from their lives.
Buddhists believe that healing the sick will help alleviate spiritual suffering. In Buddhist thought eye disease and clouded vision are considered a reflection on a personâs ability to free themselves from feelings of greed. To this end, Buddhists were known to use small books called olas, which contain both prayers and remedies for a number of ailments, including eye disease.
Within the Eyes of Buddha symbol, the dot centered between the eyes represents the third eye. For Buddhists the third eye is a symbol of spiritual awakening. Common to many cultures, the third eye represents a source of hidden power to Hindus and in western thinking indicates clairvoyance or second sight.
