The Walking Buddha is a rare depiction and one of the least common positions of the Buddha as he is shown in physical motion. It is often said that he is travelling to or from Heaven in order to deliver a sermon.
As one of the main teachings of Buddha is to reject material attachments, this statue encourages the recognition of internal beauty and grace.
