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.

"Jagua" (scientific name genipa americana) is an edible, orange-size, tropical fruit with a thick rind found in the Amazon. The natural dye is extracted from the unripe fruit and used for many purposes by indigenous people throughout Central and South America, especially for body adornment. Its medicinal properties are well documented, chief among them the ability to repel insects and, when taken internally, to treat bronchitis.
This kit contains the original Earth Jagua Tattoo Kit; the exciting new book by Carine Fabius, Jagua — A Journey into Body Art from the Amazon; and Land of Jagua, a fascinating 30-minute DVD that takes viewers to the heart of the Amazon.
Part of the proceeds from every sale of the Earth Jagua Body Art Set is sent to the Matsés to help pay for medicine and other necessities.
