Indeed, the most important aspect of feng shui is the benefit which cannot be seen with the naked eye. This elusive element is positive energy, also known as “chi energy”. As such to encourage the flow of positive energy one must create a fertile ground in mind, body and speech.
Although enhancing living space (natural light, open space) are good, the more important benefits come from within. As a result, the sun will always shine on you but only if you think positive! Therefore, Buddha statues and auspicious symbols should be integral for a home design that encourages virtuous living.

Proven Effectiveness Of Feng Shui Buddha Statues
Advocates of feng shui encourage the use of large Buddha statues. As a result, the flow of chi energy is amplified accordingly. Evidence exists to this effect in the Leshan Buddha statue which was originally constructed in ancient China.
However, it is not certain if the architect of the project had feng shui specifically in mind from the outset. Fortunately, intentional implementation of feng shui is not necessary to receive the benefits.
The Enormous Benefits of Feng Shui
The mastermind behind the construction of the Leshan Buddha was a monk named Hai Tong. Hai Tong was full of positive energy and confidence when he set out to build the biggest Buddha sculpture in the known world. Additionally, his primary motive was compassion for the sailors navigating China’s treacherous inland waterways.
For centuries, many sailors were killed and many ships were destroyed while sailing through the rough waters that existed at the confluence of 3 large rivers. Therefore, Hai Tong decided his feng shui Buddha statue would be carved into the huge cliff facing the junction of the Minjiang, Dadu and Qingyi rivers located in southern Sichuan Province China.
Construction of the Leshan statue began in 713 ACE and it was finally completed in 803 ACE. As a result of the construction, tons and tons of rubble were deposited onto the river bottom and it altered it’s flow. The ultimate effect was to calm the rough water and make passage safe for the sailors and their vessels.
The calm waters still exist over 1200 years after construction was completed. As a result, it is strong evidence that a Buddha statue will enhance the flow of positive energy. Certainly, prolific evidence such as the Leshan Buddha statue must make sceptics think twice!
Tibetan Auspicious Symbols for Feng Shui
Using Buddhist virtue to effectively enhance Feng Shui is not exclusive to Buddha statues. Other accessories such as a Set of Eight Auspicious Symbols can be highly complementary to feng shui Buddha statues.
Each auspicious symbol represents an important Buddhist virtue. The eight symbols are white parasol, right turning conch shell, golden fish, endless knot, victory banner, treasure vase, lotus flower and the golden wheel.
