Vitarka Mudra~ the Wheel of Law

Vitarka Mudra
Intellectual argument, discussion. The circle formed by the thumb and index finger is the sign of the Wheel of Law. This mudra is probably the most recognized depicted on many statues of the historical Buddha.

The wheel of Law (the wheel of Dharma)is the eight spoke wheel representing the Eight Fold Path and symbolizes Buddha 'turning the wheel of truth/law'
