The meanings of the postures of the Buddha - Saturday

Buddha in Wat Tha Rua

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 Saturday Buddha image is sitting in a full lotus position in meditation on the coiled body of the Naga ‘Muchalinda’ that uses it’s head as a cover against rain.

This pose represents a time during the sixth week after Siddhartha's Enlightenment, when the Naga king protected the meditating Buddha against heavy rainfall by making a shelter with his multi-headed hood and lifted him above the flood waters by coiling its body under him.

If you were born this day:
You are calm, logical and a bit of a recluse, very likely engaged in manual work of a skilled nature.

Lucky day is Friday and lucky color is blue
Unlucky day is Wednesday and unlucky color is green.
