If you are just starting out in the world of meditation you should know that having a statue that reminds you of peace and love is a very positive thing in your process and will serve as a willing companion and inspiration as you journey through the wonderful world of meditation. Each statue has a different meaning and may even represent something different to you. Even if you choose a Buddha statue, it will have a different meaning depending on its position (Buddha sitting, Buddha standing, Buddha with crossed legs, etc). Therefore, you can find different types of statues:
- Buddha Statues: Buddha Sculptures refer to protection, harmony, teaching, invocation, and meditation. - Kuan Yin Statues: Kuan Yin is the manifestation of Great Love and Great Compassion, and is most often represented as a female deity. - Jizo, Tara and Other Statues: Jizo Bodhisattva is one of the most beloved and revered Bodhisattvas in Mahayana Buddhism. Tara is a female Buddha. She is the manifestation of the wisdom of all Buddhas. - Zen Garden Statues: Zen garden statues allow you to customize your outdoor space to make it your own authentic shrine of meditation. - Buddha On Lotus Throne: Our Buddha on Lotus Throne statues represents Buddha, sitting in deep meditation on a lotus throne.
