Thereof, is it OK to keep Buddha statue at home?
It is acceptable to keep a Buddha on the shelf with closing doors, however. Also keep it away from messy or unkempt parts of the home, especially the bathroom. If a decorative Buddha figure is placed in a car, it should face forward. In the garden, the statue should face the home to bring abundance and prosperity.
Subsequently, question is, is a Buddha good luck? The statue's plump figure and benign countenance suggest contentment, magnanimity, and plenitude. Often called Laughing Buddha, his signature smile is symbolic of pure contentment and joy. Happy Buddha is considered a symbol of good luck, and it is thought that rubbing his big head or belly brings fortune and wealth.
One may also ask, which way should Buddha face for luck?
The 'Laughing Buddha' is popular as a house-warming gift. It is best to be gifted one, than buying it, should be kept on an elevated surface facing the main door, and never on the floor. It should also not be kept in the bedroom or the dining room.
