Manaslu 00 09 Kathmandu Boudhanath Statue Closeup  [9 of 16]


Around the base of the Kathmanduís Boudhanath Stupaís circular mound are 108 niches, each containing the Dhyani Buddha Akshobhya, with a decidedly Hindu flavour. Akshobhya is blue with his right hand touching the earth while his left hand holds a begging bowl. He is the Buddha of the East and is dedicated to helping you overcome hatred, anger and aversion.
