"Oh don't put a Buddha on the floor or the ground!! Have a Google and you'll see why, pop it up on something," one alerted the dancer, to which he replied: "Oh, will have a look."

A second follower further explained: "Never place a Buddha statue on the floor or near the soles of your shoes; this is not appropriate and may be disrespectful.

"Instead, use a table or altar to display the statue. It is a good idea to place a piece of red paper under the Buddha to add a symbol of luck to an altar placement."
