Comments: The Saturday Buddha image is sitting in a full lotus position in meditation on the coiled body of the naga Muchalinda that uses its head as a cover against rain. This pose represents a time during the sixth week after Siddhartha's Enlightenment, when the naga king protected the meditating Buddha against heavy rainfall by making a shelter with his multi-headed hood and lifted him above the flood waters by coiling its body under him. The Buddha image can be taken out of the Naga - seven headed serpent.
