Four Headed Buddha Shrine in Hong Kong
Thailand Four Headed Buddha Shrine in Hong Kong
Probably the only one four-headed Buddha temple (or shrine) in Hong Kong (that I know of) can be found right at the foot of our headquarters office building in Kowloon Bay.
The shrine houses a four-headed statue of Phra Phrom, the Thai representation of Brahma, the Hindu god of creation, very popular in Thailand.
Facing the shrine's entrance, the front face represents career and life. Continuing clockwise, the second is symbolic of relationship and family, the third is for wealth, and the last for wisdom and health.
According to beliefs and traditions, what is said to the 1st head must be repeated exactly the same (same words and same way) to the other 3 heads, for your prayers to be heard and granted.
It might seem strange to you to find such shrine at the bottom of a financial building.
However, it makes sense to a certain extent when you know that our Chairman has worshipped and prayed the four-headed Buddha most of his adult life.
It is a ritual, in the company I work for, to go pray to the four-headed Buddha during various annual ceremonies throughout the year.
Thank you, take good care of yourself and your loved ones and be safe.
