When depicting Buddha, the positioning of the hands (Mudra) is very important and different mudra represent different things. Here, Buddha is shown in the Vitarka mudra ('the murda of discussion') and this represents the discussion and transmission of Buddhist teachings. The position (Asana) for seated Buddhas is often this full lotus position with the feet resting on the thigh of the other leg and the soles facing upwards. This meditative asana is known as Dhyana Asana or Padmasana.
