The Buddha (also known as Siddhartha Gotama or Siddhārtha Gautama or Buddha Shakyamuni) was a philosopher, mendicant, meditator, spiritual teacher, and religious leader who lived in Ancient India. He is revered as the founder of the world religion of Buddhism, and worshipped by most Buddhist schools as the Enlightened One who has transcended Karma and escaped the cycle of birth and rebirth. He taught for around 45 years and built a large following, both monastic and lay. His teaching is based on his insight into duḥkha (suffering) and the end of dukkha – the state called Nirvana.
Bhumisparsa Mudra (Earth Touching Mudra)
The Statue of Buddha in this listing is sitting in Bhumisparasa Mudra
Bhumisparsha, the earth touching mudra, is one of the most well known mudras. You will often see Shakyamuni, the historical Buddha, in a seated posture with this mudra. The right hand is poised with the fingertips downward and “touching the earth”, with the palm facing inward. The left hand is in the meditation (dhyana) mudra. When the Buddha became enlightened, he touched the earth with this mudra during his meditation. The earth was touched and witnessed the awakening.
Best placement: Since the Buddha touches the earth, this is a mudra that can ground and support you in any room of the home. The center of your home is also a recommended spot since it’s connected to the earth element.
