Thai Red Buddha 12cm
This 12cm Thai Red Buddha is associated with bringing peace and serenity to the household it is placed within. A Buddha statue or image in the home lends calming yin energy to balance the active yang energy of your lifestyle. Items like this ornament are used with Feng Shui bagua which when translated from Chinese means ‘8 areas’.
The six main mudras are;
Dhyana Mudra – This mudra signifies meditation. Both hands are in the lap with palms upward. The right hand is on top of the left hand.
Bhumisparsa Mudra – Subduing Mara, Calling the Earth to Witness. The left hand lies in the lap, palm upward. The right hand bends over the right knee, with fingers slightly touching the ground.
Abhaya Mudra – Imparting Fearlessness. This gesture is made with the hand raised and the palm facing outwards, fingers extended pointing upward. The wrist is bent at a right angle with the forearm.
Vitarka Mudra – Teaching, Giving Instruction, Reason. The hand is held closer to the chest than in the Abhaya Mudra. The palm is facing outward. A circle is made with the index finger and the thumb. The other three fingers point upward.
Dharmachakra Mudra – Turning the Wheel of the Law in Motion. Same gesture with both hands as in Vitarka Mudra. However the hands are generally held closer to the chest of the Buddha. The fingers of the left hand also rest against the palm of the right hand.
Varada Mudra – Symbolizing Charity. The hand lowered with the palm facing outward is the gesture of bestowing blessings or of giving charity. The hand is extended downward, palm out.
