Life moves at a frenetic pace in the 21st century and a Buddha statue can bring peace and make you stop and take stock of your life.
Buddhist theory states that a "Buddha" appears from time to time and preaches the true doctrine. After a period of time this teaching becomes corrupted and lost, and isn't restored until a new Buddha appears.
These Buddhas represent safe travel and exciting adventures ahead. They are all happy and smiling as they journey boldly across the world. They are believed to protect all travelers and wayfarers from harm, and they also invite adventures, travel and excitement into the lives of those who desire it.
