    Different Poses of Buddha

    by ATXtraveler Updated Aug 19, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There seems to be a discrepancy between believers of Buddhism as to whether or not the 7 different poses of Buddha are related to the days of the week, or differing times in his life, but it is definitely that many men and women do worship one of his poses, mainly based on the day of the week that the individual was born.

    Sunday is "Seven Days Looking"
    Monday is "Pacifying the Relatives"
    Tuesday is "Realizing Nirvana"
    Wednesday is "begged"
    Thursday is "The Meditating Buddha"
    Friday is "Contemplating Buddha"
    Saturday is "Protected by the Naga King"

    Favorite thing: If you are in Thailand you will see lot of Buddha. This island have many Buddha too. Near Ko Samui they have a "holy" little island with a temple and many Buddhas. I did this picture over there.
