Gautama Buddha, or the Shakyamuni Buddha, is a philosopher and spiritual teacher who founded Buddhism. While being born a prince, Buddha saw firsthand the suffering of the people around him and was moved to seek enlightenment. He succeeded in this pursuit and this thangka depicts the Buddha in the pose he did when he reached enlightenment. Buddha can be seen sitting in a lotus-position, cross-legged with feet facing upwards. His right hand is in an earth-touching mudra, to symbolize his enlightenment and the moment he called on the earth as the witness to his achievement. His other hand is in a meditative mudra, facing upwards with his begging bowl on top.

On his head is the ushnisha or the cranial bump that represents his expanded intelligence and wisdom. He has an urna on his forehead, an auspicious mark that signals of a third "eye" that can see through the universe of suffering. His earlobes are elongated which signals his compassion to listen to the sounds of the world. Meanwhile, his lips are in pink contrast to his golden skin, which represents the wisdom that passes through them when he teaches. This thangka depicts Buddha in a robe of a monk seated in a meditative pose. He sits atop a moon disc on a multi-colored lotus throne. The moon disc represents absolute truth and often associated with peaceful deities while the lotus throne represents purity. He is also flanked by his two disciples, Maudgalyayana and Sariputra. They also stand on a lotus throne which is colored orange (or yellow-toned) for wisdom and pink to represent the Buddha himself. Sariputra is the one usually depicted to the Buddha’s right. At the top are victory banners which represent Buddha’s triumph over the four obstacles or maras.
