In the rush that is day-to-day life, there is very rarely time to experience the peace of mind that comes from simply living in the moment.

Ji Lee’s Pieces of Mind project aims to change that by encouraging people around the world to break this cycle, if only for a moment.

Pieces of Mind is an open project to place 10 000 tiny meditating Buddha status in public spaces for others to find.

When people (unexpectedly) happen upon these little figurines, the hope is that they will take the time to take a moment and find peace of mind.

If you find a Piece of Mind, or choose to place it somewhere, you can also take a photograph of it and upload it to the Pieces of Mind website.

The Pieces of Mind Buddhas are being given a way for free on the website, or you can order them.

Take the time, think Buddha, and go in search of your own peace of mind. The world will be a better place for it.
