His asana is the bed of the lotus flower. The glimmering pastel hues of its petals go well with the surrounding landscape. Undulating hills in multiple shades and tints of verdure, which are the lower reaches of the Himalayas. Streams of the pristine, youthful Ganga making her way through their midst. The mythical flora of the region comprises luxuriant canopies and wild pink flowers that tug at the very soul. Amidst such natural plenitude stems the Bodhi tree with its bejewelled canopy reaching till the wisps of white and gold clouds in the skies above.
Sage Gautama marks the moment of His Buddhahood with the Bhumisparsha mudra of His hand. The earth (bhoomi) beneath Him is called upon through His touch (sparsha) as witness to the juncture of Enlightenment.
