All Buddha statues are hand selected by former Buddhist monk Sean 'Dhammiko', who trained for more than 3 years in China and Thailand at Dhammakaya Monastery under Abbot Dhammajayo, Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery under Venerable Pasanno, and Chan Monastery under Venerable Wei. He now organizes meditation retreats at a large center in the San Francisco Bay Area and leads meditation classes inside Solano State Prison.

Indoor and Outdoor Buddha Statues
All our statues are suitable for indoor or outdoor use, so yes! Your Buddha statue will thrive in your garden or on your bookshelf. The bottoms are padded to protect delicate surfaces from scratches, and their durable finishes will weather the rain.
Buddha statues are a symbol of enlightenment and compassion, and depending on the type of statue, may represent specific Buddhist concepts - such as the Eightfold Path and the Four Noble Truths – or more general concepts like balance, wisdom, compassion and generosity. More than just a decorative accent, Buddha statues can help us find our balanced center and remind us to put stress into perspective.
Though Buddha statues come in many materials – gold, wood and jade – our shop specializes in Buddhas crafted from stone. Stone is representative of the Earth Element – the element of nourishment and health - and used by feng shui masters to infuse a space with a sense of groundedness.
Buddha Statues Bring Harmony
Buddha statues may serve as not just decorative pieces, but may also remind us to remain calm, peaceful, and participate in daily thoughtfulness. Such thoughtfulness or mindfulness of ourselves, although it does not have to be religious at all in nature, may help us to expand our horizons, remain calm throughout the day, and put stress into perspective. As decorative pieces, however, Buddha statues from a Buddhist shop themselves may serve to add an Asian touch to your favorite room or outdoor space. It may also serve as a greeter for those in your kitchen, dining room, or front porch.
Everyone Loves Buddha Statues
You may have a specific, special corner of one of your rooms reserved for them, may place them on a pedestal, on a table, or around a room to add to the overall décor. Or, you may, instead, bypass having them indoors, altogether. Instead, you may opt to keep them outdoors. In this case, place them on your front steps, on a special pedestal anywhere in your yard, in your garden area among flowers and water features, or in a special corner of your patio.
Our Variety of Buddha Statues
Our consigned Buddha Statues include a wide variety of styles and traditions. There are several very popular positions for the Buddha (Gautama) to be depicted in when being sculpted. These include: the Dhyana Mudra, which depicts the Buddha with one or both of his hands in his lap. The Bhumisparsha Mudra depicts the Buddha on the back of an elephant or with his right fingers reaching toward earth. The Abhaya Mudra, in which the right hand is raised with the palm facing outward and the left hand, is at the hips. The Dharmachakra Mudra depicts the Buddha with his index finger and thumb touching to form a circle. Lastly, there is also the Varada mudra, showing the Buddha with both hands at the waist, both palms outwards, with the left hand pointing down, while the right one points up.
