Protection Buddha


Protection Buddha statues are always shown depicting the Abhaya mudra. This classic Buddhist mudra is depicted with the right hand held chest high and the palm facing forward. The Abhaya mudra depicted in this manner is a sign of fearlessness and protection for devotees. Our Protection Buddha statue is using the mudra in a manner that is predominantly associated with Shakyamuni Buddha. This is the mudra that he used when he was approached by an aggressive elephant one day in the forest. The attack was abated and he had saved his own life along with the lives of several others. For this reason statues that are crafted in this manner are known as Protection Buddha statues.
