The Samadhi Statue is a statue situated at Mahamevnawa Park in Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka. The Buddha is depicted in the position of the Dhyana Mudra, the posture of meditation associated with his first Enlightenment, also called Nirvana. In the Dhyana Mudra the Buddha sits cross — legged with his upturned palms placed one over the other on his lap.

This position is universally known throughout the Buddhist world, and this statue is therefore one of the most typical pieces of Buddhist sculpture. It is not to be confused with the very similar “Earth—Touching Mudra.” This statue is 8 feet in height and carved from granite.
