Description
 
Before reaching enlightenment, the Buddha meditated under the Bodhi tree for six weeks. When the Buddha reached enlightenment and was asked how he knew he was enlightened, he touched the earth and said, "Let the earth be my witness."

The Buddha is pictured as gold, holding his begging bowl in the left hand and touching the earth on the right. He is on a white moon disk and this is on a throne of lotus representing enlightenment, and the lotus is rising out of the waters. The Buddha was said to have a golden aura emanating from him which is why his body is golden.He is accompanied by his two closest disciples Shariputra and Maudgalyayana.
