A Sense Of Balance And Harmony: Lord Buddha In The Abhaya Mudra

Peace, tranquillity, harmony, and balance. Those are words often associated with Buddhism, and thus the Buddha's likeness has become a popular presence in many homes as a centerpiece or accessory, even amongst non-believers.

Typical depictions of Lord Buddha show him in either the Dharmachakra Mudra position, the Bhumisparsha position or the more popular, Abhaya Mudra position.

The Abhaya mudra (mudra of no-fear) represents protection, peace, benevolence, and dispelling of fear. In Theravada Buddhism, it is usually made with the right hand raised to shoulder height, the arm bent, and the palm facing outward with the fingers upright and joined and the left hand hanging down while standing. In Thailand and Laos, this mudra is associated with the walking Buddha, often shown having both hands making a double Abhaya mudra that is uniform.

The mudra was probably used before the onset of Buddhism as a symbol of good intentions proposing friendship when approaching strangers.

The gesture was used by the Buddha when attacked by an elephant, subduing it as shown in several frescoes and scripts. In Mahayana Buddhism, the northern schools' deities often paired it with another mudra using the other hand.
