The Buddha’s thumbs and index fingers form a circle, which represents his teaching of the Wheel of Dharma (the union of method and wisdom). The other three fingers always remain in a stretched position to represent calmness and meditation. Both of his hands are placed in front of his chest to remark the fact that his teachings came from his heart.
The Teaching Buddha, also known as Dharma Chakra Buddha, is a statue in a standing or sitting position. The sitting pose is most popular though, since this is the actual position that Buddha took when teaching. This statue represents a transcendental period in the Buddha's life. It symbolizes his passing down of the knowledge he had gained after being enlightened in the deer park. The statue can be used to assist the movement of the chi energy throughout your home space. This is the perfect choice for the northeast (education) sector of inside your office or home. It is always good to place the statue facing into your room or at the entrance so it blesses the people entering your house.
