    A Buddha for Every Feng Shui Purpose

    It is no surprise that the ancient Chinese practice of feng shui makes plentiful use of Buddha statures and imagery to manage the quality and flow of energy in the home.  

    In general, the presence of Buddha brings peace and serenity to the home. When you have a busy, hectic lifestyle—which is the expression of yang feng shui energy—it is very important to focus on creating a peaceful quality of energy in your home. And no influence does this more effectively than the presence of  Buddha.

    A Buddha statue or image in your home lends calming yin energy to complement and balance the active yang energy of your lifestyle. And balanced yin-yang energy in your home is the key to good health and well-being.

    Explore our feng shui selection of Buddha decor elements—from sculptures to art posters—and see which one works best with your Bagua and your home decor.
