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.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
