Kamphangphet

Phra is the image of the Buddha representing his descent from the Tavatimsha Heaven, to which he had risen in order to preach to his mother. Normally it is in the form of a figure that seems to have come to a momentary pause mid-stride, one heel raised while the other foot is firmly planted on the ground, one hand lifted in a gesture of giving instruction or dispelling fear, while the other arm is naturally at its side. This is also known as Abbhaya mudra, the mudra of no fear. In Theravada Buddhism, a mudra is a symbolic gesture or symbol. This gesture of Phra Leela means dispelling of fear, peace, protection as well as benevolence.
