Buddha Statue is a resin statue that sits 8 1/2″ inches high on a 5″ inch base. The statue is painted with interesting glass inlays. This piece will turn your entry into a welcoming space or a bedroom to a place of solitude.
“Peace, tranquility, harmony and balance. Those are words often associated with the Buddhism, and thus the Buddha’s likeness has become a popular presence in many homes as a centerpiece or accessory, even amongst non-believers.
Before purchasing and placing a Buddha statue in the home, here are a couple of things to keep in mind. Some of these are general principles that involve good taste and avoiding disrespect. A few have to do with using Buddha statues to enhance the balance of chi, or energy, in the home using the science of Feng Shui.
Placing a Buddha statue in a part of the home that enjoys good energy already is the most auspicious choice. A beautiful vista or restful, uncluttered room has better chi than one confronted by jutting angles or noxious outdoor lights at night or loud street noise through a window. Views of electrical wires, large bridges, or looming high rise buildings could also be associated with disruptive chi and can undermine the effect of placing a Buddha in the room.
Never place a Buddha statue on the floor or near the soles of your shoes; this is not appropriate and may be disrespectful. Instead, use a table or altar to display the statue. It is a good idea to place a piece of red paper under the Buddha to add a symbol of luck to an altar placement. It is acceptable to keep a Buddha on the shelf with closing doors, however. Also keep it away from messy or unkempt parts of the home, especially the bathroom.
Great locations for a Buddha figurine include the study or office reception desk, in your meditation garden, or where yoga is practiced. In the garden, the statue should face the home to bring abundance and prosperity. Indoors, keep the statue facing into the room unless it is facing the main entrance from another angle, to block negative energy and greet visitors.”
