"Closing Eye Buddha" known as Pra Pit Dtah
- The "Closing Eye Buddha" known as Pra Pit Dtah.
- The Buddha sitting in crossed leg "Lotus" posture with two hands covering both eyes to obscure his sight allowing no evil to enter his vision or thoughts. The Pra Pit Dtah Buddha reminds us that the world of the senses is uncertain and filled with illusion; hence the display of Buddhhist rejection of worldly lies and untruths. Thai people revere this Buddha image as a reminder to be wary of luxury and material goods, sensory pleasure, and not be taken in easily by everything we see.
