Gold Buddha statues sit against beautiful gold, red and blue material.

For Buddhists, gold is more than just a precious metal

We may think of gold as being the symbol of wealth, but it has deep spiritual connotations, too – especially in the teachings of Buddhism. Laughing Buddha statues, the symbol of happiness and good health, are usually painted gold or even made of solid gold, such as the amazing Golden Buddha of Wat Traimit temple in Thailand that weighs in at more than five tonnes.

In Buddhism, the golden fish symbolises the auspiciousness of all living beings in a state of fearlessness, while the gold lotus flower represents the ultimate achievement of enlightenment. So, the next time you find yourself surrounded by gold, don’t just think bling. Close your eyes and enter your sacred place.

Interiour with gold details

In addition to its spiritual significance, gold is also a popular choice for home decor. It adds a touch of luxury and elegance to any room and can be incorporated in various ways, such as in the form of furniture, accessories, or even wall art. In the bedroom, gold accents can create a warm and inviting atmosphere, promoting restful sleep and relaxation.

To incorporate gold into your bedroom decor, start with small touches such as a gold throw pillow, a picture frame, or a vase. You can also experiment with gold bedding or curtains for a more dramatic effect. Another option is to add a statement piece such as a gold accent wall or a gold chandelier. However you choose to use it, gold is sure to bring a touch of spirituality and luxury to your bedroom.
