Buddah Board is great!

I love it. I can't walk by it without writing or drawing something on it. Everyone who comes in my house wants to express something on it. It's so unique.More > < Less

It's delicate but we love it

1/5/2014 by Allison

This is really neat in concept, the only complaint is that the board is super delicate. It came with a small darkened area on the board out of the box and you have to change the water daily and have to be really careful as to what touches the board because it can stain. So in other words...as much as my kids really really love this thing, they are only allowed to use with very close supervision. This was a gift for my husband who is easily frustrated with many aspects of his job - he uses to help keep work at work and relieve some stress and it does work well for him. It works as advertised, just not really a great thing for little ones.More > < Less


Neat item

I thought this made a neat "zen" gift for my partner. Item came as described with instructions. The image dries very quickly, but it's a great gift for those who want to get a little more creative. Would purchase again.More > < Less


A good gift to me!

I've had my "Budda Board" about 2 weeks. It is addictive! I have it sitting on a desk in the living room and every time I pass by I write what's on my mind. It's cathartic. I live alone so I say whatever. I just wish it didn't fade so quick.More > < Less

About Buddha Board

Create, Reflect, Relax

It can be hard to live in the moment when we’re always juggling tasks, scheduling activities, and playing catch-up. The Buddha Board lets you slow down, let go, and savor the enjoyment of creating.

The inventor is Eric Thrall, who envisioned a way to help people embrace the Zen concept of mindfulness. His drawing board is both a meditative product and a doodling tool. When you paint on the Buddha Board surface with water, the image darkens. As the water evaporates, the artwork slowly fades. What’s left is a blank slate—literally and figuratively. When the water disappears, so do the feelings and emotions that went into the artwork, leaving the artist with a clear mind, Eric says.

Learning to appreciate change and to value the present is important for all ages. The Buddha Board is a great tool for unleashing creativity without worrying about perfection or permanence. You can create artwork or simply doodle or practice brush strokes. The art may be fleeting, but the enjoyment lingers.
