As a person who studied about Buddhist art. The first thing I have noticed a broken statue behind the villain, statues both hands pinched RECOGNIZABLE Buddhist gesture. Why does it appear in the “Far Cry 4”?

As a person who studied about Buddhist art. The first thing I have noticed a broken statue behind the villain, statues both hands pinched RECOGNIZABLE Buddhist gesture. This gesture is called Abahya Mudra, hand’s thumb and middle finger relative to symbolize startling focus and precepts.

Perhaps the other side of Tibetan Buddhism, the religion of the Himalayas, there is any case with this gesture? If yes, then it will undoubtedly confirm the rumors of the Himalayas. And the screen background is the plateau, the lower left corner flags and rubble is also iconic images of Tibet. And the color of the flag sequence is very accurate.

Far Cry 4 villain is sitting on a headless statue of Buddha, which is probably the single basic sign that he can be against Tibetan Buddhism. What is the specific story? Everyone makes a good brain, a variety of conspiracy to usurp power and the like, we can discuss in the comments area.
