The meanings of the postures of the Buddha - Monday


In every temple there a number of different Buddhist states and each one has a different meaning - this does not remain consistent when I read all the documentation BUT I have chosen this one from Willy.


This is from Willy’s Site - Phuket 101

The Monday Buddha image is standing with the right hand raised to shoulder height with the palm out and the fingers extended (the abhaya mudra).

This image represents Buddha pacifying the relatives. When Buddha returned from heaven after three months, his relatives were arguing about the rights to water flowing through their land. Buddha persuaded them to compromise.

If you were born this day:
You are serious with a good memory and a love of travel, likely to be in a skilled occupation.

Lucky day is Saturday and lucky color is black
Unlucky day is Sunday and unlucky color is orange.
