Our composed and serene Gautam Buddha is seated on a cushion of lotus flower pedals. Statue stands 8 inches tall. Meditated to Enlightenment, he represents victory over temptation and peace and inner happiness. This buddha holds his hand in a Vitarka Mudra, interpreted as the hand gestue that evokes the energy of teaching and intellectual discussion, or argument. It mostly feels like the transmission of a particular teaching with no words, and the circle formed by the thumb and index finger creates a constant flow of energy/information. The energy created by this hand gesture allows for a transmission of knowledge in a protected way, without being impeded by fear. The best feng shui placement for a Vitarka Mudra Buddha is said to be in the home office or library/study. Made in Nepal.
