The Abhaya “protection” mudra is a classic Buddhist mudra that is displayed by many Buddhas and bodhisattvas. The symbol for fearlessness can be depicted with either the right and left hand. It is very important in Buddhist beliefs and it inspires a sense of fortitude and confidence in devotees. Our White Tara sculpture is depicting it with her left hand held chest high and palm facing forward.
