What matters is choosing the right statue for you.
Different statues represent different things. And in this guide I am going to show you how to choose the best spiritual statue for your home, and then share my personal favorite spiritual statues.
How to choose a spiritual statue for your home
When it comes to choosing the best spiritual statue to buy, consider these points.
- What should your spiritual statue represent?
Do you want your spiritual statue to represent a positive emotion or quality, such as hope or gratitude? If so, you want to feel that way when you look at the statue. It doesn’t’ matter if it’s called a “Happy Statue” if it actually makes you feel sad!
- What message should your spiritual statue have?
Spiritual statues often have specific messages written on them. If it is a Hindu statue the message may actually be a mantra (Read our guide to mantras).
It’s important that the message on your spiritual statue be meaningful to you. Do the words on the statue resonate with you? Do they make you feel good? Do they connect you to the divine?
- Make sure your spiritual statue works with your home décor
Thousands of people have read The Daily Meditation’s guide to creating a Zen room. In it I discuss everything from design to colour choices. You should consider the same points when buying a spiritual statue.
When you’re buying a spiritual statue you’re often thinking about meaning, spirituality, and, you know, deep things. It can be easy to overlook this fact: You spiritual statue has to look good in your home!
What room is it going in? What colours are in that room? Do you have an accent colour? If so, get a spiritual statue that’s in the same accent colour.
- Which God or Deity is the spiritual statue of?
Depending on your beliefs this will either be very easy or incredibly difficult. If this is a Christian statue then you are probably going to get a statue of Jesus Christ. If it is a Hindu statue you might find it harder to choose. After all, there are 33 million of them. Picking your god or deity should be one of the very first things you decide.
- What’s your budget for this spiritual statue?
Are you buying a cheap spiritual statue or an expensive one? Either way there are some things to bear in mind.
Firstly, if it’s a cheap spiritual statue, just make sure the manufacturer is trustworthy. Otherwise you’ll end up with a spiritual statue that falls to piece (and that’s just not good karma!)
If it’s an expensive spiritual statue, bear in mind that some unscrupulous manufacturers sell so called antique spiritual statues that are not actually antique at all—they’re just designed to look old. Knowing a fake from a genuine antique statue is not easy. But this guide on fake antiques makes for an interesting read.
