Large Shakyamuni Buddha Statue Poses and Mudras
Our fully gilded large Shakyamuni Buddha statue is a depiction of the original Buddha. The most prominent feature of the big Buddha statue is the classic Bhumisparsha mudra. This classic mudra is displayed with the Buddha seated in full lotus pose and the right hand gently draped over his right knee. Additionally, the palm is flat and facing inwards and the fingers are lightly touching the ground.
The Buddha depicted this mudra because he was calling the earth goddess to witness his vanquishment of the demon Mara. As a result of overcoming the final temptation, the demon Mara was defeated and Siddhartha Gautama became the Buddha of our time. Additionally, his willingness to teach the Dharma to others resulted in the reemergence of Buddhism at a time when it had been forgotten.
His left hand the bid Buddha statue is depicting the Dhyana “meditation” mudra and rests flat in his lap. Insight wisdom is acquired through meditation. This is why the Dhyana mudra is also known as the meditation mudra.
Other traditional elements of this large Shakyamuni Buddha statue include the Ushnisha topknot, the elongated ears, third eye of wisdom and right turning hair coils. The statue also features elaborate face painting and intricate carvings on his robe.
