Tired of petitioning the Powers That Be every day for world peace, a winning lottery ticket, and for them to still have your size when those purple Fluevog boots you desperately want go on sale? Rest easy! Now you can let the Electronic Monk do your chanting for you!
You’re just a couple of AA batteries away from world domination once you unpack this useful appliance from Tokyu Hands. For a mere $38 and a flip of the switch, this sturdy plastic cleric will chant your choice of sutras 24/7, tirelessly dispensing blessings as he waves a lotus bud in your general direction. Unfortunately his robes are a shade of Designer Orange that will only match your decor if you haven’t yet gotten rid of that shag carpet that was installed in 1972, but surely that’s a small price to pay for eternal bliss!
