The way to be peaceful

This is one relief carving (3’ X 3’ X 5”) I did three years ago and this still happens to be my best. I liked it because of the symbolism.

At the center you see a Buddha like face that symbolizes enlightenment and peace. The top folded palms denote respect for all or surrender to God (if you are a believer). Still lower are two palms in Abhaya mudra symbolizing fearlessness or assurance of non violence to others. Just below them are palms in Vairagya mudra indicating detachment. The lowest set of palms is obviously in Dhyäna mudra denoting meditation. 

The message is – if you respect all, mean no harm to any one, not indulge in over attachment to worldly things, and mediate, you are sure to find everlasting peace. This in essence is what Yoga is all about.
