Introduction to Laughing Buddha

The Laughing Buddha is a statue or image of a jolly, rotund man with a big belly and a wide smile, typically depicted in a sitting or standing position with his arms raised in the air. The Laughing Buddha is a popular symbol in Chinese and East Asian culture, and it is associated with good luck, prosperity, and happiness. The image is based on an actual historical figure, a 10th-century Chinese monk named Budai, who was known for his jovial personality and love of children. In some traditions, rubbing the belly of the Laughing Buddha is believed to bring good fortune and wealth. The statue is often used as a decorative element in homes and businesses and is also a popular gift for weddings, housewarmings, and other auspicious occasions.

How do you take care of your statues?

• Place them at room temperature, avoiding direct sunlight.
• Make sure that the area where your statue is placed is entirely free of moisture and dust.
• Place it at the highest place on your altar after being consecrated by Lama/monks. The best practice is to keep them covered inside a glass cabinet.
• Do not use your bare hands or any objects with a rough surface to wipe the face. Directly touching with the bare hand objects can smudge the face, leaving scratches.
