Which Way Should a Buddha Face?

A Buddha statue should always face east. The statue should also never be placed in a bathroom or face one. The statue should not be on the ground or bare floor; it should sit on a stand or pedestal.

Buddhism is a major religion practiced all over the world and was founded by Siddharrtha Gautama. He became a monk, hoping to understand the world around him. Guatama became known as the Buddha, and he spent the rest of his life traveling around India and teaching others. The Buddha’s teachings are made up of the Four Noble Truths. They say that suffering exists, it has a cause, it has an end, and there is a cause to make suffering end. Buddhism also revolves around the cycle of rebirth. A person can be born into six planes, and karma decides which one.
