“A house is made of wood and beams but a home is made from love and dreams.”
This is an excerpt from a very famous poem written by Lorraine M. Halli. The poetess has beautifully captured the beauty of the home. ‘Home’ is not just a place to live, it is an emotion, and it is a beautiful aspect of our life. We want our home to have positive energy all the time. However, it might not be possible to ensure that our home never has a speck of negativity in our house. But there are some ways to prevent the entry of negative energy and remove the existing one in your house.
If your home doesn’t have a constant flow of positive energy then it could be due to the Vastu problem. Vastu problems are notorious when it comes to removing or getting rid of them. The older the problem is, the harder it gets to get rid of it. So what can we do about it?
Well, one of the most reliable ways to correct a Vastu problem at home is by having a Brass Buddha Statue in your home. The brass Buddha statues have a significant effect on reducing or even removing Vastu problems.
Brass Buddha Statue – Types & Significance
- Medicine Buddha Statue – Medicine Buddha is known for his healing abilities and the power to prevent diseases from spreading in the body or others. He is famously called ‘Bhaisajyaguru’. He is one of the Bodhisattvas. Medicine Buddha’s realm is called Pure Lapis Lazuli.
You can identify the medicine Buddha from another statue by checking the position of his hand. In the idol of Medicine Buddha, his left hand is shown with a bowl and the other hand is shown as resting on his knee or raised till shoulder level to bless his devotees.
It is believed if the Brass Buddha Statue is kept in the room of a sick person then the positive flow of energy helps in the fast recovery of that person.
