A Gautama Buddha statue with
Abhaya Mudra gesture in the
Ananda temple in the famous
Bagan area of central Burma
Abhaya in Sanskrit means fearlessness,
and the abhaya mudra symbolizes
protection, peace, and the dispelling
of fear. The gesture is made with the
right hand raised to shoulder height,
arm bent, and palm facing outward.
The gesture is an ancient one,
demonstrating that the hand is empty
of weapons and thus indicating
friendship and peace.
Bagan is an ancient city in central
Myanmar (formerly Burma),
southwest of Mandalay. Standing
on the eastern banks of the
Ayeyarwady River, it’s known
for the Bagan Archaeological
Area, where more than 2,000
Buddhist monuments tower
over green plains. Holy sites
around Old Bagan include ornate
Ananda Temple, built in 1091 and
topped with a golden stupa.
