Bhumisparsha mudra, the earth touching gesture is rendered as the moment of Buddha’s awakening as the earth shows up as its witness. In this explicit pose, Shakyamuni Buddha is viewed seated with his right hand descending over the right knee in the direction of the earth, while we observe that his left hand is on his lap with his palm upright. This position is a symbol of consistency and stability exhibited by the Buddha while he had his intention set in the pursuance of procuring enlightenment through meditation under the Bodhi tree. The legend says his dedication and concentration surpassed all temptations and the traps laid out by the demon Mara, his daughters, and the army.
In this remarkable brass statue of Bhumisparsha Buddha, his simple way of living is seen as he wears a robe concealing his shoulder, while his meditative third eye is denoted by the Bindu on his forehead. This graceful, tranquil, tasteful structure of Bhumisparsa Buddha, the enlightened one, is said to elevate peace and positive energies. Bhumisparsha Buddha seated on a pedestal nudges us to inflate our interest in spiritual practices. It urges us to indulge in habits that bring about quietness within ourselves, to concentrate on the positive whilst subduing unwanted feelings, beliefs, and thought patterns.
