Few have never heard the idiom “See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.” Although typically associated with three monkeys, apparently there may be a link to 18th century Buddhists. On some deep level, I must have known this. For when I saw these three wise men, one with covered eyes, one covering his ears, and the last covering his mouth, I knew that I must have them.
Seeing these little Buddha statues, encourages me to see the good in people, not let the positive words and sounds go unnoticed, and speak with optimism and encouragement. In essence, the remind me to see no evil (only good), hear not evil (just the positive), and speak no evil (inspire).
