I hope it's okay to resurrect this thread a bit, but here's my home shrine. Nothing much, a few nice personal objects.

The top poster and the small laminated card are from a Pure Land group that offered Buddhist resources through the mail for free, which I ordered more than a decade ago. The two black and white pieces of paper are from the An Hy Quan Vegetarian Restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico. They offered those posters on their way out the door after a tasty meal. The middle Buddha image came from somewhere! I don't recall where.

The altar itself is a milk crate covered in a cloth given by a friend. The incense holder is a standing Buddha, the candle holder was a gift from a close friend, and the shell holding the flowers was a gift from my partner. Many pleasant memories and ideas to reflect on, even though most of the time I spend facing it I'm not "looking" at it per se.

A window sill shrine with a newly acquired brass statue, a lotus origami that I got from my sister some years ago, a scented candle + black carton background for a pleasant low key view/contrast.

It's a small shrine in the corner of my living room. Which I separated from the rest of the room with a large sheet hanging from the roof.
Just enough space for my zafu and zabuton :heart:

Very inspirational thread.
I'm moving house in a couple of months and then I will set up a more permanent shrine. Will share a pic here, hopefully. :)


Metta,

My altar at work, which is a mishmash of styles for two reasons. 1) I find they are a good talking point for students (I am a teacher in school). 2) I find them aesthetically pleasing.

My altar at home, if it can be so called, is simply a single buddharupa on the top shelf of my bookshelf.
