Risabha, in Hindu mythology, was the oldest of the twenty-three Buddhas who have appeared in India, belonging to the race of king Ikswara. He is frequently represented as an ox, though more generally as a man with the head of an ox, or as a man with horns. The ox, as a symbol of wisdom, is peculiar to him, and always accompanies him, even when he is simply represented on the altar by a variously colored head.
