Description: This painting brings to mind what Anuruddha said of Buddha's death. "There was no (troubled) breath in Him (tadino) the steadfast-minded
unshaken, calm (santim) attained then when he ended life, the sage (muni) with mind (cittena) courageous pain (vedanam) endured. Even as the extinction (nibbanam) of a flame (such) as was his mind's (cetaso) release."
