  • Legend has it the Laughing Buddha lived as a Chinese monk over thousand years ago
  • He walked from one village to another distributing toys, sweets and trinkets among children. He always carried a sack full of gifts and goodies and had a jolly smile on his face, and he had a rotund tummy. Due to these characteristics, people started calling him the Laughing Happy Buddha.
  • The Laughing Buddha is also known as the Fat & Happy Buddha of Wealth & Prosperity
  • He is known as Budai in China and Hotei in Japan
  • He is dancing on a bag of treasure with a tree branch holding a lucky gourd hung over his shoulder. The sack represents prosperity and abundance rather than the tangible aspect of money
  • There is a small child over his left shoulder, and another grasping the treasure bag of gold at his feet
