Protection Buddha / Overcoming Fear Buddha with right hand raised and facing outwards has 2 common meanings. The first is that of the Protection Buddha, as the raised right hand symbolically represents a shield. The second meaning, Overcoming Fear, (since one who is receiving protection would be less fearful). This statue signifies courage and offers protection from fear, delusion and anger.
