We have some new folding altar tables in our Tibetan furniture section. Each table was handmade and hand-painted in Nepal. These altar tables fold up for transport or storage. We have a small size and a larger size of altar tables in stock. Altar tables are wonderful for your home because there are certain guidelines for properly honoring Buddhas in your home. The first important thing to know about Buddha statues is that they should never be displayed on the floor inside your home. Buddhas should be up on a table, shelf, altar table, etc. You should also refrain from having a Buddha in a space where you may point your feet to the Buddha. It is disrespectful to point your feet to the Buddha, and actually in many countries (like Thailand) it is even disrespectful to point your feet to anyone. Also keep the Buddha statue out of the restroom or bedrooms. If possible, place your Buddha statue on an altar table in a special room in your house, called the puja room, pooja room.
Our tables can be stored or carried easily if you would like to travel with your altar table, or if you are a yoga teacher or healing practitioner and would like to take your altar table with you.
