Having spent years traversing the wilderness of the North Indian plains, the former Buddha settles down at the foot of the Bodhi tree. He is the erstwhile Shakyamuni who had renounced his material fortunes and lived a life of severe asceticism. Now the Bodhi tree has Him in her unflinching shade, moments - in terms of cosmic time - ere His enlightenment. He is seated in padmasana with the begging bowl in His lap, a gold brocade robe about His shoulders which is symbolic of His divine glamour. In fact, everything about this thangka is rich with symbolic meaning.

His asana is the bed of the lotus flower. The glimmering pastel hues of its petals go well with the surrounding landscape. Undulating hills in multiple shades and tints of verdure, which are the lower reaches of the Himalayas. Streams of the pristine, youthful Ganga making her way through their midst. The mythical flora of the region comprises luxuriant canopies and wild pink flowers that tug at the very soul. Amidst such natural plenitude stems the Bodhi tree with its bejewelled canopy reaching till the wisps of white and gold clouds in the skies above.

Sage Gautama marks the moment of His Buddhahood with the Bhumisparsha mudra of His hand. The earth (bhoomi) beneath Him is called upon through His touch (sparsha) as witness to the juncture of Enlightenment.
