White Metal Buddha Statue, Assorted
For Buddha, life is to be lived on Earth, not in Heaven... and Nirvana is not a place, but a state of mind in witch one is released from fear and desire, living in love and compassion here on Earth.
The Buddha on the left is portraying the Vitarka mudra, which symbolizes the teaching phase in the life of Buddha and the circle stands for a never-ending flow of energy.
The Buddha on the right portraying the Dhyana mudra. This is the meditation mudra, which symbolises wisdom. The Buddha used this gesture during his final meditation under the Bodhi tree when he attained enlightenment.
The bhumisparsha Buddha is always depicted in a seated position, with its right hand resting on its knee and fingers pointing towards the earth. The left hand rests on its lap with the palm facing upwards. ‘Bhumisparsha’ means ‘touching the earth’ or ‘calling the earth to witness’. This mudra represents the moment when Buddha became enlightened underneath the Bodhi tree.
