Buddhist Symbols

In the Lamrim teachings it says that just seeing an image of a Buddha places a potentiality on the mind that is a definite cause of enlightenment, and which nothing can destroy.

Prints are available in various sizes and formats including mini cards, postcards, art prints, large format prints and canvases. These blessed images can be used meaningfully as a reminder of a particular Buddha you can carry with you, a meaningful focal point for your place of contemplation, or a centrepiece for your meditation room.
