This statue signifies compassion and caring for all beings. This is a statue that is particularly appropriate for those who are either studying or are interested in learning more about spirituality.
But there are a few postures that are not seated with crossed legs, namely the Maitreya Buddha, where the "Buddha of the Future" sits in a chair Western style. It represents a time when the Buddha was returning to earth after delivering a sermon on the Dharma in Heaven, and was being accompanied by Lord Indra and Lord Brahma.
There are two positions for crossed legs, namely with the right leg resting above the left leg in the Single Lotus Position, or with both knees pointing downward and the ankles tucked on top of one another in the Double Lotus Position. Because the Buddha had gained enlightenment in this lifetime, the Buddha was able to escape the endless cycle of birth - death - rebirth known as samsara and was able to enter Nirvana. Right hand raised, facing outward, left hand dangles along left side of body.
This statue is for people who are either looking for peace and clam in their lives, or for those who wish to improve their own meditation skills. In this pose, the Buddha is depicted with both hands in the lap, face up, and the legs are crossed, either in a Double Lotus pose with the ankles of each leg tucked behind one another in a locked position , or in a Single Lotus pose where one leg rests on top of the other leg.
