This wood sculpture from Bodh Gaya, the important center of Buddhist pilgrimage, represents Buddha as seated in ‘padmasana’ fully absorbed in meditation. His right hand is extended down to the earth with its central finger touching it, and the left palm is placed in his lap in the dhyana mudra. The cross-legged sitting posture with up-turned soles of the feet, as has this magnificent image, often defined in India’s iconographic tradition of the divine images as 'padmasana' – lotus posture, is identified in the Buddhist, as also in the Jain, traditions as the ‘Yoga-mudra' – a meditative posture. In Buddha’s early images such posture is associated with his three forms : ‘Bhumi-sparsha-mudra’, fasting Buddha and ‘Dhyani-Buddha’, though contextually hardly of any significance for in these forms the acts that the Buddha performs or the stages he passes through alone are significant. ‘Yoga’, as part of the Buddhist spiritual practices, as also the corresponding ‘yogasana’ posture of the Buddha’s image, evolved in late Vajrayana Buddhism around the ninth-tenth centuries as a potential means to make the body flexible, supple and youthful, and sometimes for representing absolute Buddhahood – the state of total extinction of worldly experiences, all acts and all material contexts, the state of ‘Nirvana’ while still in life.

Testimonials

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
