  • The Buddha touches towards the ground with his right hand, and the earth immediately responds: “I am your witness.” The darkness vanishes as a morning star appears in the sky. This moment of supreme enlightenment is the central experience of the Buddhist tradition
  • In Buddha statues with the Bhumisparsa mudra, the historical Shakyamuni Buddha is seated with his right hand over the right knee reaching toward the ground while touching towards the earth
  • In the meantime, the left hand can be seen with the palm upright resting gently in his lap
  • This gesture represents the moment of the Buddha's awakening as he summons the earth as the witness of his enlightenment
  • This Buddha is seated in full lotus leg position and is adorned with beautiful stylized earrings that were fashionable among royalty in the era of the historic Shakyamuni Buddha
