Bhumisparasa: Earth Touching Mudra

Bhumisparsha, the earth touching mudra, is one of the most well known mudras. You will often see Shakyamuni, the historical Buddha, in a seated posture with this mudra. The right hand is poised with the fingertips downward and “touching the earth”, with the palm facing inward. The left hand is in the meditation (dhyana) mudra. When the Buddha became enlightened, he touched the earth with this mudra during his meditation. The earth was touched and witnessed the awakening.

Best placement: Since the Buddha touches the earth, this is a mudra that can ground and support you in any room of the home. The center of your home is also a recommended spot since it's connected to the earth element.
