Meditating Buddha Statue
Materials: This 4 feet buddha statue is carved in Sand Stone also called Red Stone. Hand-carved in Odisha.
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 Meditating Buddha Statue 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. Dhyana mudra is specifically used to deepen concentration and guide the practitioner towards inner peace and equanimity.
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: It is also known as Samadhi or Yoga mudra. It is performed with the help of two hands which are placed on the lap and place the right hand on the left hand with stretched fingers (thumbs facing upwards and other fingers of both the hand resting on each other.) This is the characteristic gesture of Buddha Shakyamuni, Dhyani Buddha Amitabh, and the Medicine Buddha. Typically this mudra is depicted with the hands resting in the lap or at the heart center.
This meditating Buddha statue is used in representations of the Sakyamuni Buddha and Amitabha Buddha. Sometimes the Dhyana mudra is used in certain representations of Bhaisajyaguruas the Medicine Buddha, with a medicine bowl placed on the hands. It originated in India most likely in the Gandharaand in China during the Wei period. The Dhyana mudra was used long before the Buddha as yogis have used it during their concentration, healing, and meditation exercises.
