Buddha Shakyamuni was born Siddhartha Gautama, the only son of king. At the age of 29, he renounced the luxury of his royal heritage to take up the life of a religious wanderer. At the age of 35, after gaining profound insight into the true nature of reality (Dharma), he attained complete enlightenment. In this image Buddha is depicted on Bhumisparsa Mudra which recalls the moment of Buddha's enlightenment day when he touch the earth to witness his profound realization.
