Rakan is seating on pedestal.

The right arm rests on puppy head. The left with Tama rests on the propped knee.


The Rakan, also called Arhat, are ascetics preserving and proclaiming the Buddhist law on earth between the death of Shakyamuni, the historical Buddha and the arrival of Maitraya, the Buddha of the future.

The term rakan means "the worthy", is the highest title given to disciples of Zen Buddhism. These disciples achieved enlightenment through their rigorous practice and personal hard work. In Zen Buddhism, it thought that enlightenment is achieved by an insight or long and rigorous work on oneself and a deep awareness. These faithful practitioners are considered the guardians of the Buddha's teachings and honored as role models in the spiritual quest.
