The Buddha is seated here in padmasana with the soles of his feet turned upwards. He has arched eyebrows, which are followed by inward-looking, introspective eyes. His nose is sharp and pointed and the gentle lips are pursed with the lower being slightly thicker than the upper.

His drape covers both the shoulders. It is bare robe devoid of any decorations, befitting one who has given up material life. The folds of the blessed garment melt in at the feet of the Buddha - as if paying their own homage to the 'Great One.'

The hands of the Buddha are raised to the chest making the Dharmachakra mudra. Dharmachakra in Sanskrit means the 'Wheel of Dharma'. This mudra symbolizes one of the most important moments in the life of Buddha, the occasion when he preached the first sermon after his Enlightenment in the Deer Park at Sarnath. It thus denotes the setting into motion of the Wheel of the teaching of the Dharma.

Significantly, in this mudra, the hands are held in front of the heart, symbolizing that these teachings are straight from the Buddha's heart.

This sculpture was carved in the city if Gaya, sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists. The artists are the father son duo of Ram Chandra and Deepak Gaur.

  • This is a very beautifully crafted statue. The Buddha, though, preached his first sermon as I understan it, to his five former companions, and the statue at Sarnath shows the five disciples before the Buddha. In this piece, though, there are seven disciples. Is there a reason for this?
