Interpretation

 

This picture depicts the moment of Shakyamuni Buddha’s attaining enlightenment.  In this moment, He has His right hand open touching His knee and pointing His fingers to the earth. His action is for Him to realize that He is awake and his enlightenment is real.

He is surrounded by two of His students. On His right stands Kasop, who vowed to practice Buddha’s teaching with sincerity. On His left stands Anan, who understands Buddha’s words the best.
