This picture shows a special gesture (Sanskrit: mudra), which has a specific meaning in the Buddhist context. It is known as “gesture of turning the wheel of Dharma” or “Dharma-Cakra-Mudra” and symbolizes the proclamation of the teaching of the Buddha.

The hands are at the level of the heart, thumbs and forefingers form a circle.
May this help to spread the teaching of loving kindness throughout the entire universe!
