The Buddha Blessing is a soapstone representation of Lord Buddha. It is one of the most common images of Buddha: cross-legged with both of his feet turned upwards.
This posture is known as padmasana and it resembles a semi-sprouted lotus. It is a conventionalized and traditional image of the Buddha in Cambodian iconography. The lifted hand with the palm turned outwards represents the granting of wishes to the people who accept the teachings of Buddhism. This posture is also known as the Dhyani Buddha in iconographic tradition.
The posture which is shown with this “mudra” represents the summoning of heaven to witness Buddha’s enlightenment. The wholesome meditative practice in front of the image of the Buddha helps you to identify paramount mental qualities: "serenity" or "tranquility" and "insight." Serenity composes, unifies, steadies and concentrates the mind and insight enables one to explore, see and discern through phenomena or events in life. The blessing Buddha is welcoming every spirit that wants to be freed from the constraints of the world by suppressing the hindrances, gaining insight and liberating wisdom. Moreover, by attaining serenity and insight we clear the path towards the state of Nibbana, which is the total absence of pain and sorrows.
