Spread a little… love, happiness, peace, harmony, praise, and faith

During the life and times we're all going through right now, a little enlightenment and encouragement can go a long way. Enlightenment in one's life during stressful times is often overlooked and not given a second thought. Why not remind yourself with some of Buddha's philosophy's.

Love, Happiness, Peace, Praise, Harmony, and Faith accompany the Buddha Buddha Life line from Rocket USA. The line of banks, lights, key-chains, and pocket Buddha's will not only give you that reminder of where our life should be, but gives you the enlightenment and encouragement that you could use on a daily basis.

One of Buddha's simplest words of wisdom is “Everything Changes”. With one of the Buddha Buddha Life banks you can have a safe place to prepare for those inevitable changes of life in which Buddha speaks. Every Buddha Buddha Life Bank is modeled after the historical Chinese Buddha child and stands over 8” tall. You can pick from six different styles and colors that come in a durable poly-resin bank. My golden happiness Buddha Bank is being filled up with loose change on a daily basis, we're using it to provide for a happy time, be it a trip or something to buy, once the bank is filled we'll use the contents to provide the family with some happiness.

One of my favorite products in the line is the Buddha Buddha Light, again with 6 different styles/themes and fashioned after the historical Chinese Buddha child you will be reminded of the one you choose with the spiritual glow that the light provides. As Buddha said “Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.” Giving the gift of light or candles traditionally represents wisdom in Buddhism and this would be a great uplifting and wise choice for a gift for yourself or someone else this holiday season. The lights stand just over 8” tall and are modeled in a neutral color and look just as great unlit as they do lit sitting on a stand/shelf. Let the glow of the lamp help you find you way down the path.

“Nothing is lost in the universe” more great words from Buddha. Yet, how many times have you lost something, like...you're car keys? Why not use the good karma that Buddha Buddha life wants to give you when it comes to handling those keys that none of us could do without? Using a Buddha Buddha Life key-chain can't guarantee that you'll always be able to locate your keys but attaching a little Buddha to them will at least put a smile on your face and give you a little more color in your life. Each 1.5” key-chain figure comes with two Buddha Buddha Life stickers and a Buddha reflection quote to help guide you down the path.

Buddha Buddha Life's line of Pocket Buddha's helps to remind you of one of Buddha's most important messages “We are what we think. Clear and kind thoughts build good, strong character.” The Pocket Buddha's give you a gentle reminder of what's important in life, and how many of us or people that you know could use that reminder right now. Sometimes we need just that little thing to remind us, and the Pocket Buddha's standing at 1.5” are a great way to give us a reminder and daily reflection with our own lives. Having a reminder and reflection quote can help guide you down the path and the laws of cause and effect, and good karma are bound to kick in....

I find right now, not only in our family life but with friends of mine as well, right now we could all use a little reflection and guidance in one form or another, a simple gift from the Buddha Buddha Life collection could spark that good karma or give you that daily reminder of where your life needs to be. Remember as Buddha said “You yourself, as much as anybody, in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” Something that often gets lost in our busy daily lives.

Visit Rocket USA's Buddha Buddha Life website today www.buddhabuddhalife.com and treat yourself or someone else in your life to a little happiness and reflection. You can also find all of the Buddha Buddha Life products at your local Borders Bookstore, visit www.borders.com to find one near you.

I like the keychains -- maybe having that cute little Buddha on my keys would encourage me to keep better track of them.

What a great site! My favorite is the Buddha Buddha Light, Harmony. That's certainly something we all need in our lives and what I'm striving for right now.

Happy Sunday! What a wonderful idea!
I really like the "Buddha Lights" and the "Pocket Buddahs!" The "Serenity" one is for me. I am a worrier and always look for serenity and tranquility. Many thanks, Cindi

I have what people jokingly refer to as a "Zen Den," a little closet of a crawl space that I like to keep clean and orderly, as a refuge from the rest of my very hectic life. Call it a time out spot for grown-ups. And now I'm thinking, what's a Zen Den without a Buddha Buddha Light? I must get my hands on a Harmony light as soon as possible.

Thanks for introducing me to this fun product!

I love the Harmony Bank. My husband and I try to live our lives with the Buddhist philosophy of living in the moment, so these would be great reminders to do that. Plus they're darned cute. I think we're trying to balance our lives in harmony after having a child this year.

I would love to get the Peace Buddha Light for a friend. The Harmony one is probably the best fit for me right now.

jenn said...

OMG! I COLLECT BUDDAH'S!!! THIS IS SO AMAZING! I NEVER KNEW ABOUT THIS COMPANY AND IT'S SO AWESOME!

I think I'd get the Peace or Harmony Buddah, not just for me, but for everyone I know. I kinda think that's what everyone needs; if you have peace and/or harmony then everything else, like faith, love, etc...will come and fall into place.

I love the pocket and light bhuddas, right now, I'll go with Faith! - Peace is ongoning.

I am obsessed with the 'happiness' bank which you feature on your site, and the 'happiness' pocket buddha as well. The bank is already on my Xmas wish list and I have been hinting to my 'santa' baby to buy it for me!

mar said...

The Love Buddha Buddha light is one of my favorite products!

drming said...

My favorite is the Buddha keychain. Always good to pat Buddha's head for luck so having him on a keychain would be very convenient.
