    More Shapes of the Buddha

    Relaxing Buddha

    Favorite thing: Another favourite is the "Relaxing Buddha" as depicted at Shwethalyaung. Note the open eyes and the feet slightly spread, which differentiates it from the Parinibbana, or death pose.. (feet together, eyes closed)

    Shapes of the Buddha

    Bhumisparsa

    Favorite thing: The figures at Kyaik Pun Paya show the Buddha in four of the common poses.

    The picture here is my favourite pose called : Bhumisparsa. In this pose the Buddha touches his right hand to the ground, while the left hand rests in his lap.

    This symbolizes the Buddha meditating as the forces of evil try to distract him with women, wine, and song... He touches his hand to the ground so that the forces of Nature can witness his resolve not to be tempted....

    I, not being a good Buddhist, would have likely been likely tempted by this kinda stuff, but I do admire His resolve...
