I have several images, facing several directions, sometimes i even mob\ve them around.

I haven't had any bad luck I could attribute to them, and if I did I expect it would be the result of my past actions, not my choice of placement of an object.

Are you kidding me! <deleted> difference would it make...don't be like the Thais (and 99% of the "religious" people in the world) and bastardize the teachings of the founder of their belief system. A Buddha image is just an inanimate object...made of wood, stone, metal, whatever, which, like any other piece of wood, stone, or metal, has no magical powers or properties.

Viewing an image of the Buddha may instill in the viewer certain emotional feelings or states we may want to encourage, and for which these images are produced, but please, stop-it with the magical stuff and bastardizing everything the Buddha stood for.

It is just a nice looking statue. Your father has simply focused on the period of time since he put it up. Like pointing towards Mecca or pilgrimages to a holy rock, it is just silly.

There is a Thai spirit house that makes a lovely birdhouse in a friend's garden. As far as I know he is fine.

Apparently to many people it is not silly at all.
