This position of Buddha is the gesture of teaching usually interpreted as turning the wheel of law. The hands are held level with the heart, the thumbs and index fingers form circles.
Born in 563 B.C in Nepal, Buddha was originally referred to as Siddhartha and lived a rich, pleasant life as the son of the king of the Sakyas. After seeing suffering for the first time as a young man, he renounced his title and embraced asceticism. He eventually achieved enlightenment after meditating under a Bodhi tree. It is said that during his meditation, he was almost deterred by the forces of temptation (Mara).
