"The Meditating Buddha" (Paang Nung Samadhi) in a sitting pose is a reminder of the classic posture for meditation.

The full lotus with both soles upward and visible, the hands resting in the lap, right above left with all fingers extended, palms upward, sometimes called as "yoga posture". In this position, some meditators feel the body is receptive to energy entering through the top of the head and through the open palms.

The Bodhisattva makes a vow and is determined not the leave the spot (where he is sitting on the grass) until he achieves enlightenment. The Boddhisattva determines to find the cause of suffering and its cessation.
