The reclining Buddha is an iconographic representation of the Buddha lying down during the moment of his Mahaparinirvana. Buddha is said to have known that his death was approaching while in this position, the Buddha asked his disciples to make a couch for him in a bush to make it easy for him to lie down. Although he had attained enlightenment and became the Buddha, as a human being, the Buddha had to leave his physical appearance. The physical demise of the awakened world is termed as Mahaparinirvana, the state beyond Nirvana.

The reclining Buddha statues are not supposed to induce the state of sadness to the followers but rather the reclining Buddha should be taken as an object of encouragement that all beings have the potential to be awakened or enlightened and release themselves from the suffering which is characterized by the cycle of rebirth. The serene and smiling expression of the Buddha in reclining Buddha statue portray the compassion and calmness that comes with the enlightenment.

Place it on a clean table or shelf to symbolize your inner beliefs and state of mind. People will witness the serene statue, feel at ease, and know you to be a peaceful person.
