Lord Buddha's hands are in the dharmachakra mudra. This is the gesture
of teaching. Dharma means 'law' and chakra means 'wheel' and is usually
interpreted as turning the Wheel of Law. This was the hand gesture
exhibited by Lord Buddha while preaching his first sermon after his
Enlightenment in the Deer Park at Sarnath, near Varanasi.
This discourse is known as the 'first turning of the wheel of dharma',
when the Buddha taught the doctrines of the Four Noble Truths and the
Eightfold Noble Path to five Indian mendicants.
The sculpture pictured is the only sculpture Dharma Sculpture has like
this in our gallery. When you order this piece you will receive
this exact sculpture. This one of a kind Buddha statue is hand carved
by the very talented artists of Bali, Indonesia!
