Gautama Buddha, also known as Shakyamuni, is a well-known person who is believed to have lived in India around the sixth century BCE. His teachings, which provide as the foundation for much of Buddhist theology, are frequently shown in Shakyamuni Thangka  artwork that features the "Earth-touching gesture" (also known as the Bhumisparsa mudra). His left hand is shown resting on his lap to represent concentration during meditation. He is seen in his distinctive sitting position, wearing typical monk's attire. As a symbol of his enlightenment, his right hand is resting on the ground. His elongated earlobes and ushnisha on top of his head signify a rejection of materialism and a knowledge of the spiritual world, respectively. This type of art is highly regarded for its application in meditation, which in turn gives his teachings a visual embodiment.

I am very happy with the quality of the seeds and i use it to count my mantra as it has 21 bodhi, which is so difficult to fine else where. Besides that Prateek’s impeccable service and advice is an incentive for me to purchase items from him. I will gladly recommend this website to you.
