Amitav: Lord Buddha's limitless lustre


A natural expression of things by words (Mudra in Sanskrit) by Buddha has been a gesture holding special meanings since generations. And there are several of them. One of the most popular mudras found depicted in Buddha statues is the Dharmachakra mudra. Dharmachakra in Sanskrit means the wheel of Dharma.Thus the Dharmachakra mudra represents the setting into motion of the wheel of the teaching of Dharma. Each Mudras or peculiar hand gestures that can be seen in statues of Buddha have their own meaning, providing insights into an enlightened life. Dharmachakra mudra is one such unique hand gesture as sculpted in this wood sculpture. Translated from Buddhism as the wheel of Dharma, the distinctive gesture is also known as gesture of Teaching of the Wheel of Dharma. It depicts a significant moment in Buddha's life; he performed the mudra during his first sermon in Sarnath, a city north-east of Varanasi near the confluence of the Ganges and the Gomati rivers in Uttar Pradesh, India. Looking at the sculpture can unconsciously elevate inner awareness and usher calmness and peace.
