Touching the Earth (Bhumisparsa) is the most common mudra, which symbolises an important episode in the life of the Buddha. When meditating under the Bodhi tree in Bodh Gaya (India), determined to reach enlightenment, his enemy Mara, the Earth Goddess, seduced him with young maidens. The Buddha then touched the Earth with one hand, showing the Earth Goddess how strong he mentally was. That very moment he was enlightened.

Placing a Buddha statue in your home can attract positive Chi energy. Buddha statues are a popular feng shui item. There are a few hard and fast feng shui rules you want to follow so as not to offend the Buddha. Be sure to follow these instructions and you’ll soon reap the blessings of a grateful feng shui Buddha.

Feng Shui Rules for Buddha Placement

Place a Buddha at a height that is at least eye level. Looking down at a deity is considered rude and irreverent. Avoid placing near electrical outlets or equipment with moving parts and motors. This type of activity disturbs the surrounding energy.

No Buddha in Bathroom, Bedroom or Kitchen
When placing a Buddha statue or any statue of a deity make sure the location is truly one of reverence. This means you should never place a buddha in a bedroom, bathroom or kitchen.

Buddha Facing Front Door
Many feng shui consultants recommend placing the Buddha opposite the main front door of a home on a table that is about 30 inches high. This location allows Buddha to interact with the chi energy entering your home. From this position, the statue can neutralize any negative chi, and transform it from damaging to very lucky energy.

Living Room Buddha
Buddha is also quite comfortable in the living room. The best position for Buddha in the living room is facing the front door.

Buddha on a Student Desk
Students should place Buddha on their desks. This is a perfect location to enlist a little help with lessons and evoke Buddha auspicious energy for fulfilling your academic goals.

Buddha Statue in the Office
For those that own a business, placing Buddha on a reception’s desk can help bring prosperity to your company. You can also place Buddha on an office table.

Meditation Garden Buddha
A mediation garden is an ideal area for a Buddha statue. One of the most popular poses is the Meditation Buddha.

Buddha Altar
If you’re Buddhist, then you probably already have an altar; just make sure you place this altar in your home where meditation and reflection can be practiced.

Buddha for Yoga Practice
If you practice yoga, then you have a special room or area of a room in your home devote to your exercise. This is an excellent place for a Buddha statue. Just be sure to place it eye level or higher.
