'None else but fear is thy enemy, thy death, disease and distress. Overcome fear and then there is no death, no disease, no distress for thee. Not death but fear is thy problem and redemption from fear is thy redemption from death', says Buddha, the universal teacher and the benevolent Lord of compassion. 'Abhaya', the freedom from fear, is, thus, the essence of Buddha's philosophy. 'Abhaya' is an essential element of votive iconography of all sects in India and beyond, but in most of them it is granted against outside enemies, the evil and destructive forces. In Buddhist thought, the enemy is within. It is fear. Buddha leads the mind beyond fear and is thus the lord of 'Abhaya' or fearlessness. Thus, 'Abhaya', the posture imparting fearlessness, has a different and unique significance in Buddha's iconography.

This image of Lord Buddha from Nepal represents him in 'Abhaya-mudra'. The Lord of fearlessness is seated on a fully bloomed large lotus in 'padmasana' posture. His left hand, holding a begging-bowl, is in the Dhyana-mudra, or the gesture of meditation. In Buddhist thought , 'Abhaya' and meditation are co-related. Meditation is the search within where inhabits the prime enemy fear. The 'Abhaya', for oneself as well as for the universe, becomes manifest only after one has entered deep within him, discovered the enemy and has defeated it. Other Indian deities, while imparting 'Abhaya' by one hand, carry in other different weapons. Buddha's images are armed with meditation as it is in meditation that he had discovered his subtlest weapon securing 'Abhaya'.
