It is crazy, Buddha like a decoration.

Who knew that the Buddha and St. Francis had so much in common. :-)

I think it evokes peace for many.

I have seen this, too. It is odd. Many of the people who have a Buddha statue in the garden probably know very little about Buddha or Buddhism. Maybe the statue is associated with serenity and that is what appeals.

He's nice looking! :)

Very interesting. Is Buddha becoming more common because of renewed interest in the religious tradition or just because Buddha makes a nice garden figure?

Peace.

VP said...

I agree with Jack. I am not sure that Buddha would be happy to be used as a lawn gnome...

Today there are more and more people who search for peace- decorate in a Zen style, and also find what they are looking for in religions other than just Christianity.
