Buy a Buddha statue for yourself
It is sometimes said that it brings bad luck when you buy a Buddha statue for yourself.
However, This is a fable invented in the West
However, a Buddha statue stands for happiness, prosperity, good health, love, protection and healing. It is a wonderful gesture to wish a loved one all this beauty by giving him or her a beautiful Buddha statue.
In the East it is quite normal to buy a Buddha statue for yourself, so it is very much laughing at the story! However, why shouldn't you really wish yourself luck?!
When a Buddha is bought with Love, he will bring even more love and happiness, whether it is purchased by yourself or by someone else. Ofcourse It is great to get a Buddha gift, but the meaning and effect is certainly not changing when you buy a Buddha for yourself.
