Buddha, the sage on whose teachings Buddhism was founded, sitting in meditation with Bhumisparsha Mudra. In this Mudra the right hand points towards the Earth, palm in. The left hand rests in the lap, palm facing up. The Bhumisparsha Mudra (meaning "Touching the Earth" or "Earth-Witness") represents the moment Buddha attained enlightenment, calling on the Earth as his witness.
