  Shin U Pagok

 

Myanmar

Shin U Pagok is a deity worshipped in Myanmar, who has authority over water. He is usually portrayed in a seated half lotus position, with his head slightly tilted up, as if looking at the sky, and holding an alms bowl in one hand, while he puts the fingers of his other hand into the bowl, a mudra that in Buddhism normally refers to eating from an alms bowl.
