A natural expression of things by words (Mudra in Sanskrit) by Buddha has been a gesture holding special meanings since generations. And there are several of them. One of the most popular mudras found depicted in Buddha statues is the Bhumisparsha mudra, translated as the earth touching gesture. This sculpture depicts the mudra and the iconographic representation is one of the most popular. An ideal artifact for any home, this sculpture in a combination of brass and stone depicts the moment of Buddha's awakening. He is seen seated with his right hand reaching the ground with the palm inward while touching the lotus throne. The left hand can be seen with the palm upright in his lap. It is believed that the Bhumisparsha mudra helps us to bring about the transformation from rage and anger to wisdom.

The abhaya mudra symbolizes protection, peace and dispelling of fear (Abhaya in Sanskrit). As per Buddhist texts, the lord had made this gesture upon attaining enlightenment. This was also the gesture made by the god while being attacked by an angry elephant and managing to calm it down. The gesture is made with the right hand raised to shoulder height, arm bent, and palm facing outward. The gesture demonstrates that the hand is empty of weapons and thus indicates friendship and peace. When the right hand is in the abhaya mudra, the left hand usually hangs loosely at the side of the body or makes the varada mudra, or gift-giving gesture.
