Buddha statues are often seen in temples, but they can also be found in other places such as gardens and homes. They come in many shapes and sizes, from small to large. Some people may buy a Buddha statue for decoration while others purchase them to show their respect or love for Buddhism. There are Buddhist symbols that you can look out for when choosing a good quality statue. 

A Buddha is a figure in art, typically made of stone or wood, that exemplifies enlightened qualities. The most common form is sitting cross-legged with the hands on the lap and palms facing upwards. In this position it can be interpreted as being about to offer something useful for our lives - such as peace, wisdom, joy or even love. 

To help you get started on your buddha statue hunt, we’ve rounded up our favourite online shops to buy buddha statues from right across Melbourne.

    FAQs About Buddha Statue

    The basic doctrines of early Buddhism, which remain common to all Buddhism, include the four noble truths: existence is suffering (dukkha); suffering has a cause, namely craving and attachment (trishna); there is a cessation of suffering, which is nirvana; and there is a path to the cessation of suffering, the eightfold path of right views, right resolve, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, and right concentration. Buddhism characteristically describes reality in terms of process and relation rather than entity or substance.

    Experience is analyzed into five aggregates (skandhas). The first, form (rupa), refers to material existence; the following four, sensations (vedana), perceptions (samjna), psychic constructs (samskara), and consciousness (vijnana), refer to psychological processes. 

    The central Buddhist teaching of non-self (anatman) asserts that no independently existent, immutable self or soul can be found in the five aggregates. Instead, all phenomena arise in interrelation and dependence on causes and conditions and thus are subject to inevitable decay and cessation. 

    The casual conditions are defined in a 12-membered chain called dependent origination (pratityasamutpada), whose links are: ignorance, predisposition, consciousness, name-form, the senses, contact, craving, grasping, becoming, birth, old age, and death, whence again ignorance.

    With this distinctive view of cause and effect, Buddhism accepts the pan-Indian presupposition of samsara. Living beings are trapped in a continual cycle of birth and death, with the momentum to rebirth provided by one’s previous physical and mental actions (see karma). The release from this cycle of rebirth and suffering is the total transcendence called nirvana.

    From the beginning, meditation and observance of moral precepts were the foundation of Buddhist practice. The five basic moral precepts undertaken by monastic orders and the laity are to refrain from taking life, stealing, acting unchastely, speaking falsely, and drinking intoxicants. 

    Members of monastic orders also take five additional precepts: to refrain from eating at improper times, from viewing secular entertainments, from using garlands, perfumes, and other bodily adornments, from sleeping in high and wide beds, and from receiving money. 

    Their lives are further regulated by a large number of rules known as the Pratimoksha. The monastic order (sangha) is venerated as one of the three jewels, along with the dharma, or religious teaching, and the Buddha. Lay practices such as the worship of stupas (burial mounds containing relics) predated Buddhism and gave rise to later ritualistic and devotional practices.

    As we all know, Laughing Buddha brings good luck, contentment, and abundance in one’s life. It depicts plenitude of whatever one wishes for – be it wealth, happiness or satisfaction.

    Usually depicted as a stout, laughing bald man with an overtly exposed pot-belly stomach, laughing Buddha or celestial Buddha is better known as Hotei or Pu-Tai.

    It is said that his appearance comes from a Buddhist Zen monk who lived over 1000 years ago. His protruding stomach and jolly smile earned him this name.

    Though a symbol from Feng Shui, the laughing Buddha holds a lot of significance in our lives. Most of us strongly believe that keeping it in a particular direction fulfils distinct desires. Hence, it is important to know which direction it should be kept in and which type of it should be used by individuals.

    Buddha statues have never been more popular, with people of all ages buying them for their homes and gardens. For some, it is purely decorative, whilst others buy them to improve the Feng Shui of their home or create a peaceful spot for meditation.

    The statues represent the many different physical Buddhas and the Buddhist teachings of inner peace, protection, and meditation. So there are jolly laughing Buddhas, serious Buddhas, and sometimes just the Buddha head.

    Original antique Buddha statues are both rare and expensive, but there are some very good copies available in statues, incense holders, jewellery and more. Buddha statues can be made out of stone, wood, concrete, metal and even paper.

    Placing Buddha statues around your home can bring peace, positive energy, good health and prosperity. The Happy Buddha - Shakyamuni Buddha - is probably the most popular statue and brings good luck and abundance. Sometimes Buddha statues can be bought in pairs or even threes.

    New in-store is this range of beautifully finished Buddha statues made from composite concrete. Available in a variety of finishes, they are suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

    Buddha statues have become a very popular addition to our homes and gardens and come in many different designs and colours.

    People buy Buddha statues for a variety of reasons. They might wish to create a special area for peace and meditation or improve the Feng Shui of their home. It could quite simply be that they love the statue.

    Interestingly, no statues of Buddha were made for about five centuries, possibly because it was forbidden.

    The Buddha statues we buy today differ according to their country of origin. Some are depicted as jolly. Others appear to be praying. Sometimes only the Buddha head is represented.

    Statues are not only a depiction of the physical Buddha but also are a symbol of Buddhist teachings, including inner peace, protection and meditation.

    Buddha Figurines from Karma Living

    Illuminate your home with Karma Living's range of home decor statues. From Buddha statues and Monk sculptures to elephants and angels, your décor look will be complete with an effigy from Karma Living. In Feng Shui, placing a figurine in your home can attract positive chi; the best positions in your home are when facing the front door, in your meditation space or in your garden. 

    Although a Sydney or Perth home or garden featuring Buddha figurines is seen as an interior design trend in some circles, it shouldn't be forgotten that a Buddha statue is sacred to Buddhists. Placing the effigy on a pedestal or table is recommended, as placing them on the floor can be seen as disrespectful. This said, providing your décor is in keeping with the basic tenets of Buddhism, there's absolutely no reason why you can't adorn your living or working space with as many ornaments as you desire. From purely an aesthetic perspective, our online statues will compliment any home's appearance, particularly if the existing décor is Asia-centric.

    Statues as Gifts for Friends and Loved Ones

    If a family member or close friend is religious or even possesses a passing interest in the teaching and philosophies of Buddhism, an ornament of any description makes the ideal gift. 

    Gold statues are also very prominent in many Buddhist countries featuring in temples and homes from Thailand to Sri Lanka to Nepal, so if you opt for one of these Thai Buddha statues for sale in Australia, you will certainly be in good company with other devotees. 

    Regardless of where you are based in Australia, our online Sydney Buddhist shop can dispatch your selected figurine quickly and efficiently. 

    Why Choose Karma Living?

    The buying team at Karma Living spend a great deal of time and effort scouring the market in order to offer amazing products for sale to customers in Sydney, Perth and throughout Australia. Our ongoing commitment to providing high-quality products at affordable prices has further cemented our position as Australia's favourite online Buddhist shop.
