Buddha, or Siddhārtha Gautama in Sanskrit, has been long revered as a teacher and symbol of enlightenment. Statues of Gautama Buddha are made in countless symbolic poses with an array of mudras that have very specific meaning. In Buddhism it is believed that spiritual practices done in the presence of a statue of the Buddha brings a sense of inner peace to the mind, body, and soul. Having a serene Buddha statue in the home can serve as a reminder to abolish hatred, fear, and jealousy and instead turn toward the peaceful practice of meditation and maintaining a positive aura.

Keeping statues of Buddha in the home, office, or giving them as gifts can serve as an inspiration on the spiritual journey to strive for only compassionate thoughts and behaviors. In the carvings of Buddha’s head especially, one will notice the elongated earlobes. The wealthy men of that time weighted their ears with precious metals and stones, but the Buddha consciously renounced his material connections for a life of spiritual enlightenment. His earlobes stayed permanently elongated but were void of riches. Traditionally keeping a statue of the head alone symbolizes the Buddhas wealth of knowledge. These can serve as a reminder to always challenge oneself to continue learning.
