GIVING BUDDHIST STATUE AS A GIFT – GOOD OR BAD?

Our President Sirisena has donated the Samadhi Buddhist Statue to Prime Minister Modi.  I have heard from my mother never to give a Buddha Statue  ( Budu Pilima) as a gift to another.

According to her giving Buddha Statue could bring Bad Omen to both the Giver and the Receiver. 

The following is an extract from the Paranormal Forum:

My mother became very fond of Buddha statues after her trip to India and in 2006 she purchased a 40 inch statue here in South Africa. Over the next few months some negative events took place at the house. The first event was the geyser had burst, and then a few other small things around the house began to give problems. 

Our neighbor came over the one day and explained to us that it’s apparently bad luck to purchase a Buddha statue for yourself, it has to be given to you as a gift. Anyway, we disregarded that as a little myth but events got worse. The house was broken into and we were cleaned out of just about everything, and my folk’s business began to hit rock bottom and had to close down. At this point we still did not relate these events to the statue, but then two of our dogs suddenly got ill and died of organ failure (which the vet could not find the cause of). 

We decided to humor the idea that the statue could be bringing bad luck, so we decided to give it to my grandmother as a gift to put in her garden. After doing so these bad events stopped almost immediately and nothing bad happened at my gran’s place after the statue was moved there. 

One very strange event took place the day we removed the statue, though. Just before we took it to the car, our Great Dane was staring at the statue in an alert manner, the hair on her back and neck were standing up and she was growling menacingly at this statue. We have other statues in our garden and she’s never done this with any of them.

To this day, I have yet to conclude whether the events that took place were coincidence or not, but after seeing how the dog reacted to the statue, and how the events just stopped suddenly, could there be a bit of truth behind what my neighbor had told us?  “

Isn’t this confusing?

    I have given a Buddha statue to a friend on the occasion of new house warming. Good and bad happens to everyone according to Kamma. Sirisena’s breaking of 3rd precept at the expense of many is good enough to get Bad Omen. Nevertheless giving a Buddha statue will not bring “Bad Omen” more than giving innocent elephant babies away to foreign countries practiced by many past presidents. Sirisena shall be commended for that.

    This is an idiotic superstition unconnected with Buddhism. All his life, Buddha preached against the dignified superstition known as religion in its many manifestations. Worshiping of a deity or other imaginary supernatural power is not found in pristine Buddhism. There is no mention of idolatry there.

    VAISRAWANA !!! CERTAINLY, IT IS NOT IDIOTIC SPUERSTITION. IT CAN HAPPEN. YOU HAVE TO EXPERIENCE IT TO BELIEVE IT, PERIOD. YES,YES, IT NEED NOT BE CONNECTED WITH BUDDHISM.

    CHRISTIANS DIED WHILE PRAYING. IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH CHRISTIANITY. IT WAS A LUNATIC AT PLAY.

    PLEASE BELIEVE ME, THERE IS ALSO AN UNSEEN HAND, WHICH YOU MIGHT EXPERIENCE SOMEDAY.
