~ Beautiful Stone Garden Buddhas ~


Tranquility is possible, even in the smallest of spaces. Gardens relax the mind. Gazing upon a well-designed gardenscape can leave you feeling soothed and at ease. Which is why it is not surprising that statues of Buddha, who represents serenity and tranquility, are commonly placed in todays landscape.

With the perfect light fixtures, this Buddha makes a dramatic focal point in this garden. Buddha statues come in many poses, all illustrating the life of this holy man. Each posture has specific hand gestures, known as mudras, that have significant meaning. Depictions of Buddha often include only the head, as it is the most important part of his body. Often times with a larger hair bump on the top of his head that signifies wisdom, the head statues generally have swirls of short curly hair and a full mouth symbolizing eloquent speech. You can choose a statue that signifies something that you may need in your life, such as serenity, or you can choose a statue that speaks to you aesthetically. However, any statue of your choosing must be treated in a respectful manner. This means trying to avoid placing your Buddha directly on the ground, depending on statue choice. Such as placing your Buddha on a pedestal or eye level, for the appropriate sense of awe.

Many Buddha statues are seated on a carved lotus flower which has symbolic meaning in Hinduism and Buddhism. A beautiful flower that emerges in a pristine condition from the murkiest of waters. In Buddhism the different colors of the lotus are associated with the different stages of the spiritual journey. For instance, a blue lotus flower is symbolic for someone who has started their spiritual journey by leaving the concept of ‘self’ behind. The white lotus flower is associated with the state of bodhi, that of becoming awakened to the wonders of it all.  A pink lotus flower is reserved for enlightenment of the highest order and is associated with the highest deity, the Buddha.
