Below are some of the positions of Buddha and it’s corresponding meanings to help you decide what is the best and most appropriate Buddha statues best suited for your home decor. Buddha sitting on a large gold nugget with a smaller nugget in his hand ready for giving to others. Buddha holding a gold ingot with his hands upright signifies abundant riches and good luck. Buddha with a fan in one hand and wu lou (bottle gourd) in the other hand brings blessings and good health. Buddha carrying a bag of blessings on his right shoulder and a fan in his left hand protects you and keeps you safe during long journeys. Let’s start with one of the most popular Buddha hand gestures called Abhaya Mudra, the energy of No Fear. The circling of energy created by the triangle (formed when the thumbs of the two hands touch) also promotes a cleansing of any impurities on an etheric level. It is interesting to note that, as the story goes, true Buddhas no longer make this hand gesture.
Bhumisparsa mudra is said to be Buddha’s hand gesture when he achieved enlightenment. This mudra is also called a boon-granting mudra, because it helps bestow a specific quality of energy one might be seeking from an enlightened being. If you have a Buddha with the Karana mudra, be very mindful about its placement, be it in a home or office. In any bagua area that needs strong clearing, or in a problematic area of the house (such as windows facing a low energy alley, for example). It emanates a glowing river of the most beautiful golden energy – soft, kind, radiant, very healing, ever-lasting.
Close to Abhaya Mudra, the energy created by this hand gesture allows for a transmission of knowledge in a protected way, without being impeded by fear.


It is a hand gesture that clearly evokes a sense of unshaked unity within oneself in aligning with the One source.

This is a popular Buddha hand gesture that is found in many home decor items with the image of Buddha, be it sculptures, pictures or even candleholders. Dhyana, or Samadhi mudra, is the hand gesture that promotes the energy of meditation, deep contemplation and unity with higher energy.
Just by looking at this Buddha hand gesture (let alone practicing it!) one can connect to the energy of deep peace and serenity. Namaskara, or Anjali mudra, is the hand gesture that evokes greeting another being with the utmost respect and adoration for the Divine in all. Bhumisparsa Mudra is translated as Touching the Earth, or Calling the Earth To Witness the Truth mudra.
It represents unshaken strength and the truth of his commitment to liberation, which helped overcome the darkness (Mara) challenging him right before he entered the Light. Often you can see a sacred shape, such as a mandala, or an eye in the palm of the Buddha hand.
Typically translated as the Mudra of Unshakable Self Confidence, this hand gesture evokes so much more. I guess we can call it the gesture of confidence in the Self, the real Self that is one with Divine energy. Vitarka mudra is interpreted as the hand gestue that evokes the energy of teaching and intellectual discussion, or argument. It is often referred to as the representation of teaching about the cosmic order as coming from (or through) the heart center.


Try holding the Uttarabodhi mudra for a couple minutes and sense the subtle energy shift in your body! The Abhaya mudra is made with the open palm of the right hand extending outwards at the chest level or slightly higher.
As you can see, the greeting is expressed in a form of prayer coming from one’s heart or the third eye. Because only with the heart, or with a deeper spiritual insight (third eye) can one truly see that we are all expressions of the same light.
This hand gesture is always depicted with the right hand, while the left hand is on the lap, with the palm facing outwards (Varada Mudra).
This mudra is made with the left hand and most often you can see it in conjunction with other mudras, such as the Bhumisparsa or the Abhaya mudras, for example. This expresses further the rarefied and powerful energy emanating from an enlightened being through his or her hands.
The hands are placed at the heart level with the thumbs and index fingers forming circles (similar to Vitarka mudra). This mudra is formed with both hands placed at the heart; index fingers touching and pointing upwards, the other eight fingers intertwined. Written by well known spiritual writers and philosophers around the world, vivid photos, travel destinations and messages of hope and love. If you look at this Buddha hand gesture, or mudra, you will also feel the energy of protection, peace and a sense of strong, deep inner security.
