Protection Buddha sits with his right hand raised and facing outwards. This hand pose symbolises a shield, thus the name – Protection Buddha. The second meaning, Overcoming Fear, related to the first since one who is receiving protection would be less fearful!
The main features of this pose, aside from the raised right hand, is that The Buddha can be depicted either sitting or standing, and the left hand may either be extended outward or palm up in the lap. This statue signifies courage and offers protection from fear, delusion and anger.
