Buddha Hands

October 7, 2007

“You’re soaking in it!”

Anybody remember that one? Buddha has soft hands too and did you ever notice how his hands are often in different positions in statues? I decided to investigate and find out what they all mean.

Turns out there are five positions, or “mudras” as they are called. And each of them has a distinct meaning. If you’ve got a Buddha statue at home, take a look and see whatchtagot.
