Buddha in general means ‘Awakened One’. That is someone who has awakened from the sleep of ignorance and sees things as they really are.
He is a person who knows everything about the past, present, and future, directly and simultaneously. He is completely free from all faults and mental obstructions. No doubt his methods of teachings, construction of divine images, subsequent meditation, worship, etc. gave mental peace to the human being.
This Buddha Statue 8″ expresses the potential for true, peace, and goodness that is inherent within each human and every sentient being. If you want to take it a step further, select a deity to display in your home holding a particular mudra to intensify your spiritual purposes. Every mudra has some meaning and purpose behind the gesture.
Mudras are used within yoga and meditation practice as a means of moving, controlling, and sealing prana within the body.

The right hand, representing enlightenment and states of higher consciousness, rests over the left hand, representing Maya, or illusion. This is believed to bring balance to the two sides of the body and brain as a means of quieting the mind.
This mudra represents the gesture of total balance. The person using this mudra during meditation is immersed in the limitless space, completely untouched by the outside world. The right hand symbolizes wisdom and awareness and the left one symbolizes the illusion of existence.
Meaning of Mudras: This gesture is also known as “touching the Earth” which represents the moment of the Buddha’s awakening as he claims the earth as the witness of his enlightenment. It is performed with the help of the right hand, which is held above the right knee, reaching toward the ground with the palm inward while touching the lotus throne. 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 encourage you in any room of the home. The center of your home is also an advised spot since it’s related to the earth elements.
