Praying Buddha statues
The posture of the praying Buddha statues can vary, but typically involves the hands being held together in front of the chest in a gesture known as “anjali mudra”. This gesture represents reverence, respect, and the act of offering. Praying Buddha statues can be made from a variety of materials, including stone, metal, wood, and resin. They can be found in different sizes, from small statues suitable for personal altars to large statues in temple courtyards. The praying Buddha statues can serve as an inspiration for practitioners of Buddhism and as a focal point for meditation and contemplation. By looking at the statue, one can be reminded of the qualities of the Buddha and can strive to emulate those qualities in their own life.
