Bhumisparsha Mudra / Earth Witness Mudra


The Bhumisparsha Mudra is one of the most important mudras in Buddhism. The Buddha is seen using the Bhumisparsha Mudra is many statues and images. In the position, we see the left hand held in the Buddha’s lap with the palm upwards, while the right hand is lowered to touch the earth. The Buddha is said to have used the Bhumisparsha Mudra right before attaining enlightenment.


 History of the Bhumisparsha Mudra

Before the Buddha achieved enlightenment he was attacked by the demon Mara along with monsters. The attackers hoped to frighten Siddhartha Guatama (Buddha) from his place under the Bodhi tree. Buddha remained unmoved. Mara claimed his spiritual successes to be greater than Buddha’s and took his place under the tree. “I am his witness” cried Mara’s monsters. “Who will speak for you?” said Mara to Siddhartha, reaching his right hand down to touch the earth.  The earth roared “I bear you witness.” Mara disappeared. It was then Siddhartha Guatama realised enlightenment.
