Bringing Harmony To Your Garden

Posted On : February 20th, 2012 by admin

Buddha statues have always been thought of as bringing good luck, harmony and tranquility. In fact the concept has been marketed so well that it is a flourishing industry in its own right. The laughing Buddha statue, arguably the most popular one, is actually fashioned not after Siddhartha Gautama Buddha, the founder of Buddhism, but Budai, a monk from Chinese folklore, who was known as a happy, wise and contented man. The differences between the two characters are stark and unmistakable, somehow the identities were confused, and the monk is now content with usurping the original Buddha’s title.

The Buddha Mood

Your garden is a place of serenity and peace, and it may be where you go to wind down after a tough day at work or with the kids. It’s only natural to want to decorate it with symbols of that peace. For that reason, Buddha statues are perfect. They not only provide that ambient mood that you’re looking for, but who knows, they may actually bring the luck and harmony that they promise as well.
