The meanings of the postures of the Buddha - Friday

This is from Wat Koh Sirey
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.


The Friday Buddha image is standing with both arms crossed over the chest with the right hand covering the left.

A short period after the enlightenment, while the Lord Buddha stayed under the Banyan tree, he stated that it was too difficult for ordinary people to understand dharma and bring it into practices. He was discouraged to teach dharma.

This Dharma that I have found is profound, hard to see, hard to understand; it is peaceful, sublime, beyond the sphere of mere reasoning, subtle, to be experienced by the wise. But this generation takes delight in attachment, is delighted by attachment, rejoices in attachment and as such it is hard for them to see this truth, namely…nirvana.

However with his great mercy and loving - kindness , he clearly understood that living creatures possessed different habits just like nature of a lotus.

If you were born this day:
You are fun loving, friendly and ambitious, probably an entertainer or public figure.
Lucky day is Tuesday and lucky color is pink.
Unlucky day is Wednesday night and unlucky color is light green.
