Statue of Sitting Buddha on top of a lotus flower, his hands in a Dhyana mudra and holding a bowl. The lotus flower represents the path to enlightenment. Metaphoric of the lotus flower growing through mud, to emerge as a beautiful blossom. We too, must see through the fog to attain awareness and clarity.
The Dhyana mudra shown here, one hand being on top of the other placed around the stomach, is the mudra of meditation and concentration. Concentration specifically on the Good Law and attainment of spiritual perfection. It indicates perfect balance of thought, all of the senses and encapsulates pure tranquillity.
