Have you ever wondered why there is such a thing as a laughing Buddha Statues? What does he stand for? There are a few reasons for this great Chinese symbol.
The laughing Buddha , or Budai, is meant to symbolize true contentment. Often he is seen carrying a small sack that is said to hold all of his belongings. This shows that he has but only a few material belongings in this world but with his large smile, he is very happy and content in where he is at in life. He may not have much more than a small cloth sack to carry all that he owns, but he knows what true meaning of happiness is and that it is not material objects. He is also known to represent wealth and prosperity as well as abundance.
When you see a laughing Buddha, you will not only see him with a cloth sack but with prayer beads. This is another symbol that should be important in our lives as prayer will help us to achieve perfect enlightenment.
The laughing Buddha is often used in feng shui because of the good fortunes it is believed to bring. Many believe that in order to receive good fortunes in life you must rub his belly each day. In doing this, you will be guided to your personal wealth. You will not ever want to put him on or even near the floor as this will show disrespect for all that the laughing Buddha represents.
