❤ABOUT TSA TSA
Tsa Tsa (Tibetan: ཚ་ཚ་, Willy: tsha tsha; Sanskrit: satchāya; Pali: sacchāya or sacchāha), a small mold-releasing clay sculpture in Tibetan Buddhism.
Tsa Tsa originated from India and was introduced to Tibet in the seventh century. It is extruded through a metal mold, and the cement is mixed with wheat grains, treasure powder, spices or the ashes of the monk. The patterns on it were mainly in Indian style in the early days, such as the Sky Tower, Gate Tower, Bodhi Pagoda, and the mantras of the Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra. Later, Tibet began to make its own molds, and the patterns of gods and Buddha images and the six-character mantra began to replace the earlier Indian style.
Tsa Tsa is generally placed in the pagoda as a stupa, or placed in a special "Tsa Tsa kang", or enshrined in temple halls, mani piles, monks' cultivation caves and other places.

❤ABOUT SHAKYAMUNI
Gautama Buddha, popularly known as the Buddha (also known as Siddhattha Gotama or Siddhartha Gautama or Buddha Shakyamuni), was a Sramana who lived in ancient India (c. 5th to 4th century BCE).
He is regarded as the founder of the world religion of Buddhism, and revered by most Buddhist schools as a savior,the Enlightened One who rediscovered an ancient path to release clinging and craving and escape the cycle of birth and rebirth. He taught for around 45 years and built a large following, both monastic and lay.
His teaching is based on his insight into the arising of duḥkha (the unsatisfactoriness of clinging to impermanent states and things) and the ending of duhkha—the state called Nibbāna or Nirvana (extinguishing of the three fires).

The Buddha was born into an aristocratic family in the Shakya clan but eventually renounced lay life. According to Buddhist tradition, after several years of mendicancy, meditation, and asceticism, he awakened to understand the mechanism which keeps people trapped in the cycle of rebirth. The Buddha then traveled throughout the Ganges plain teaching and building a religious community. The Buddha taught a middle way between sensual indulgence and the severe asceticism found in the Indian śramaṇa movement.He taught a training of the mind that included ethical training, self-restraint, and meditative practices such as jhana and mindfulness.
