19th Century Bronze Buddha on Wooden Stand
Bring peace and serenity to your home with this elegant antique Buddha. Crafted of bronze in Asia, and resting on a wooden base, the statue depicts a Tara with an Urna on her forehead, symbolizing a 3rd eye, which in turn symbolizes vision into the divine world, a sort of ability to see past our mundane universe of suffering. You don’t have to be a practicing Buddhist to experience the peace and calm that being around a statue of Buddha can bring. The term Buddha means ‘The Enlightened One’, and Gautama Buddha, the founder of Buddhism, was believed to have attained a state of perfect wisdom and balance with the forces of nature. Having a statue of Buddha at home can energize all the sectors of your life positively, strengthening all the weak aspects and enhancing positivity in your home. The ancient sciences of Feng Shui and Vastu both have a lot to say about the precise placement of the statue in your home, to optimize the chi or the flow of vital life energy within your home. Buddha Purnima, the Buddhist festival commemorating the birth of Prince Siddhartha Gautama, is coming up in May (The date may change every year in the Gregorian calendar but is typically in May. This year it falls on May 26th). Why not celebrate it in your small way at home by getting yourself a Buddha statue and the benefits that come with it?
