Buddha Akshobhya Tsa Tsa

Front Side Side View Back

This square Tsa Tsa shows Buddha Akshobhya [Tibetan: མི་བསྐྱོད་པ - mi bskyod pa]. In the base of his lion's throne, one can see two small elephants [his mount] on the right and left.


Akshobhya is second Thatagata [Dhyani] Buddha. He is represented seated, like other Thatagata-Buddhas, with legs locked and feet apparent [lotus posture]. His left hand lies on his lap in meditation mudra [posture]. His right touches the earth with the tips of the outstretched fingers, the palm turned inward.

This is called bhumisparsa or witness mudra, and is the same pose of the hands that of the historic Buddha Sakyamuni, when representing his invoking the earth to bear witness that he had resisted the temptation of the Evil Mara.
