|Vitarka Mudra portrays constant flow of energy and information.|
My inner décor demon was harder to tame when my eyes landed on this wooden Buddha head. Again his smug look and modesty on his face urged me to pick him up and bring him home. Intermingling the modern Buddha head with my antique brass made both stand out.
|Abhaya mudra which dispels terror and unites one with divine protection and bliss.|
|Calling The Earth to Witness posture is the moment of enlightenment for the Buddha|
|Resting Buddha or dreaming Buddha illustrates Buddha being in one of several deep dreams|
Reclining Buddha symbolizes his last moments on earth
|Buddha cheering our front doors|
With these handful of enliven Buddha scores, our home is alive and engaging. For me, it usually takes one glance to please all my senses or calm my nerves. His arresting charm, inimitable wit and delicious affection have urged me to freely exchange my thoughts on our small collection of Buddha at home, which I hope truly inspires you to bring him home to sense warmth and calmness in your life as well.
Until we meet again, find me on Facebook or Instagram feeds, toodles!

Signing out today, with spring musing in my mind. Trusting my infectiously happy spring mood will help you to kick start your month with an equally happy note. Though, as I am belting out herald of spring, Toronto is declared to be buried deep down under more snow, which I am not looking forward at all.
Until we meet again, stay connected, toodles!
