Created from original photographs taken in Hawaii. "Spring Blessing" features the abhaya gesture or mudra. This gesture is also called "Gesture of Fearlessness" or "blessing" or "fearless mudra". You can find abhayamudrâ sometimes also as a left-hand gesture. It is most commonly seen with the hand outstretched in front of the buddha.
