Tall Buddha with Heart Sutra in Varada Mudra

Buddha is depicted with Heart Sutra in Varada mudra. Heart Sutra is a popular Mahayana Sutra known for its brevity and depth of meaning. Varada mudra denotes the act of charity and benevolence, with the associated emotions of sincerity and compassion. It is conveyed with the left arm extending downwards, palm facing in an outward direction. Varada Mudra typically accompanies another gesture like the Abhaya Mudra and is usually seen on images of deities who enrich, grant boons and pacify their followers.
