The lotus position with joining hands is the classic posture of meditation.
The hands are sometimes represented with touching thumbs, forming a mystical triangle. This gesture, symbol of wisdom, was performed by Buddha in his final meditation, when he reached enlightenment.
Bodhisattva is a Sanskrit term used in Hinayana Buddhism to designate a Buddha before he has attained enlightenment.
In Mahayana Buddhism, it refers to one who has vowed to follow the path indicated by Shakyamuni Buddha, has taken refuge in the three jewels (Buddha, Dharma and Sangha) and strictly observes the disciplines intended for bodhisattvas, in order to help other sentient beings to awaken first, delaying one's own liberation out of compassion.
The pictures were taken with artificial lighting.
