Buddha Bhumisparsha Ashthamangal Statue

Buddha Bhumisparsha Ashthamangal (14 inches)Dimension: 14 x 9 x 8 Inches

In the Bhumisparsha mudra or gesture, Buddha calls upon the Earth to witness his claim to be known as “The Enlightened One.” He points towards the earth with his right hand and in response Bhu Devi, the Earth Goddess, lets flow a stream of sacred water at Buddha’s feet. Each drop of water symbolizes an act of merit performed by Buddha in his previous incarnations on earth. The eight auspicious symbols of Buddhism - the Conch Shell, Endless Knot, Fly Whisk, Lotus Blossom, Parasol, Twin Fish, Water Vase and Wheel of Dharma are inscribed on the body of Buddha.

Each of these symbols represents an aspect of the life and philosophy of Buddha’s teachings. The ushnisha or knot of hair on top of Buddha’s head is considered a sign of his spiritual wisdom. The Buddha’s left hand is placed on his lap with the palm upwards in the varada mudra symbolizing the bestowal of a gift. The vessel in his open palm symbolizes the gift of Buddha’s spiritual message to the world.

This Buddha Sculpture weighs 5500 g and is available in the dimensions of 14” x 9” x 8”.

About Buddha

Gautama Buddha was born a prince of the powerful Sakya clan in northern India in 543 B.C. Cocooned in luxury during his youth, the “Three Great Sights” - the sight of a destitute man, a dead body, and an ascetic - shocked him into reflecting on man’s condition in the world. He renounced his wealth and family and became a seeker of the truth. After years of penance and meditation he gained enlightenment and came to be known as the Buddha or “The Enlightened One.”
