Lord Gautama was brought up with all luxury and lush spent unaware of any worldly pain and sorrow of the outside world. Until the age of 29, he was married and had a son. One day he wanders out of the palace when he saw an old person, a sick and a dead man being carried to the cremation ground. These scenes disturbed and make him realize that no man on earth can escape from the definite reality of suffering. When he saw a holy man walking down the street, with a peacefulness on his face. That night Lord Buddha left all the royal and lavish life to find a way to overcome the fear of the harsh reality of universal truth.
For six long years hunting for the answer, he finally found the answers. In Bodh Gaya under a fig tree with deep meditation and concentration. The story of this form of pose underneath when Maara king of demon tried to deprive Lord Gautama of achieving his goal, so he tried to scare him and tempted him, realizing this Lord Gautama lowered his right hand to touch the earth the goddess to be the witness of his success.
