Akshobhya Buddha

Akshobhya Buddha is one of the Pancha Buddhas symbolizing Akasha jnana and is blue in colour. It means the wisdom like space, all-pervasive, without periphery and without characteristics. In all stupas, the image of Akshobhya Buddha is always placed in the East. Akshobhya Buddha rides on the throne of an elephant symbolizing steadfast nature of his Bodhisattva vows and is in Earth-touching gesture known as Bhu Sparsa Mudra.
