Gently raised with the palm facing out and the thumb and forefinger creating a circle, one hand holds the vitaka mudra. This indicates the Dharma body and the Wheel of Law. Essentially, the Wheel of Law indicates that all of humankind must exist and progress together without limits. The Wheel turns without beginning or end, as teaching enlightenment must continue in a constant motion. The Dharma body indicates universal truth and law.

The other hand rests on the lap in the dhyana mudra, which indicates mediation and the union between wisdom and method, ultimate and conventional truth, and nirvana and samsara.

This beautiful Buddha statue is a wonderful piece to place in the northeast corner of a home, school or office to symbolize education, teaching and personal growth. Some believe the statue will help improve the energy flow, or chi, throughout the home, school or office. Place the statue facing outward to bless those who enter so that they may become enlightened and desire continued education and truth.
