Buddha Posture - Dharmachakra Mudra
Dharmachakra mudra - setting the wheel in motion
Dharmachakra mudra (setting the wheel in motion), the hands are held in front of the chest, where the thumb and index finger of both hands touch at their tips to form a circle, symbolizing the Wheel of Dharma. This is a less common mudra since it refers to a particular episode in the Buddha's life: his first sermon, when he "set the wheel (of his life's work) in motion." It can be used for both seated and standing images.
