In one of most iconic posture Lord Buddha is depicted with both hands in the lap, face up, and the legs are crossed, in a Single Lotus pose with one leg rests on top of the other leg. Occasionally, an alms bowl is placed in the lap as well. This is called Meditation Buddha / Serenity Buddha / Calming Buddha. This pose is also known as the Amithabha Buddha, which means ?Boundless Light.?
This statue is for people who are looking for peace or clam in their lives, or for those who wish to improve their own meditation skills. People will often buy a Meditation Buddha if they want to set up a ?serenity room? or a corner of their house where they can sit in calm for a little while and unwind.
Many of the largest Buddha Statues in Japan, such as the Great Kamakura Buddha Statue at Kotokuin Temple, and large statues in Korea are in the Meditation Pose. According to Feng Shui, this Buddha statue will have a calming effect on your home and life by increasing flow of positive energy.
