The feng shui philosophy is based on living in harmony with nature. As a result, there are simple adjustments that will make your home or meditation room more serene and peaceful. Common sense feng shui implementation would include enhancing natural lighting and open spaces. However, feng shui Buddha statues and Tibetan ritual items can also create important benefits. In combination, these components of feng shui enhance human happiness which leads to longer life and accumulation of wealth.
Include Buddha Statues In Feng Shui Design
Feng shui design creates both tangible and intangible benefits. Indeed, feng shui Buddha statues are ascetically pleasing. However, the intangible benefits of Buddha statues are often underappreciated. This elusive element is positive energy, also known as “chi energy”. To encourage the flow of positive energy, one must create a fertile ground in mind, body and speech.
Although enhancing living space (natural light, open space) are good, the most important benefits come from within. To induce these intangible benefits your home needs proper visual stimulation which will enhance virtue. Therefore, Buddha statues and auspicious symbols should be integral for a home design that encourages virtuous living.
Will Buddhist Virtue Increase Chi Energy?
This is an excellent question! Indeed, the compassionate attributes associated with Buddhism alter human behavior in a positive manner. As a result, your virtuous thoughts, speech and actions will certainly create a positive ambience in the surrounding environment. This is at least as effective as increasing natural light and open space.
Properly placed feng shui Buddha statues will enhance the flow of chi energy throughout the home. Indeed, this unimpeded flow of the chi “life force” is what brings peace and tranquility into the human environment.
However, Buddha statues have unique identities and they project special meanings using symbolism. Therefore, you must buy the right Buddha statue for your home. Additionally, I encourage you to be mindful of a few important considerations when positioning your statue.
Simple Feng Shui Implementation Rules
- Place the statue on a cabinet or table at least 2 1/2 feet above the ground.
- Place the Buddha statue so it is facing the front door, This will attract positive energy and repel the negative energy which is the source of evil.
- Never place the Buddha statue on the floor, in the kitchen, bedroom or bathroom.
- Statues for use in a home office or library should be placed in a well lit area. This will encourage the flow of positive energy and enhance intellectual pursuits.
- Please use feng shui Buddha statues that include the entire body of the Buddha, not only the head or hand.
- Acquire your Buddha statue in a positive spirit and with confidence.
- Statue embellishments such as gold gilding and precious stones can attract positive energy because of the self sacrifice made in procuring the statue.
- For meditation practice place the Buddha statue at eye level.
Feng Shui Buddha Statues Use Simple Magic
How do feng shui Buddha statues create chi energy? The answer to this is very simple – a positive attitude enhances positive energy. Therefore, when a person enters their home it is certainly beneficial to immediately see a Buddha statue which represents something very positive.
During the long work day your inner virtues may become stressed and weakened. As a result, the appearance of the Buddha statue will reinforce your inner virtues as you are entering your home. Indeed, strong inner virtues enhance your thoughts, speech and actions which influence your surroundings. Therefore, positive energy is enhanced and evil thoughts are repelled and reflected back out the door!
Proven Effectiveness Of Feng Shui Buddha Statues
Advocates of feng shui encourage the use of large Buddha statues. As a result, the flow of chi energy is amplified accordingly. Evidence of the world’s largest feng shui Buddha statue exists in Sichuan Province, China.
However, it is not certain if the architect of the project had feng shui specifically in mind from the outset. Fortunately, intentional implementation of feng shui is not necessary to receive the benefits.
The Enormous Benefits of Feng Shui
A Buddhist monk named Hai Tong was the mastermind behind the construction of the giant Buddha. Hai Tong was full of positive energy and confidence when he set out to build the biggest Buddha sculpture in the known world. Additionally, his primary motive was compassion for the sailors navigating China’s treacherous inland waterways.
China’s inland waterways caused the deaths of many sailors for many centuries in ancient China. Therefore, Hai Tong decided to carve a huge Buddha statue into the huge cliff facing the junction of the Minjiang, Dadu and Qingyi rivers located in southern Sichuan Province.
During construction, tons of rubble was deposited into the river which altered the river bottom. As a result, the water below the statue was made calm for the passing sailors.
The calm waters still exist over 1200 years after construction was completed. As a result, it is strong evidence that a Buddha statue will enhance the flow of positive energy. Certainly, prolific evidence such as the Leshan Buddha statue must make sceptics think twice!
Tibetan Auspicious Symbols for Feng Shui
Using Buddhist virtue to effectively enhance Feng Shui is not exclusive to Buddha statues. Feng shui accessories such as a set of eight auspicious symbols can be highly complementary to feng shui.
Each auspicious symbol represents an important Buddhist virtue. The eight symbols are white parasol, right turning conch shell, golden fish, endless knot, victory banner, treasure vase, lotus flower and the golden wheel. Properly place each symbol in its feng shui location throughout your home to propel the strong flow of chi energy.
