Read on to discover more about the Happy Buddha and the specific symbolism of this piece...
This piece features the Happy Buddha, also known as the Laughing Buddha or Ho Tai, who is said to call in blessings, wealth, career success, good health, contentment and prosperity according to Chinese Buddhist faith. Usually depicted as a stout, bald, pot-bellied, laughing man, Ho Tai is not technically a Buddha at all, but his appearance comes from an old revered Chinese Zen Buddhist Monk, likened to the Western idea of Santa Claus/St. Nick, who was known for bringing a bag full of gifts to reward the children who came to hear his Buddhist sermons and Dharmic teachings. In some Eastern languages the word for "Buddha" and "monk" are very similar which may have led to some confusion over the ages, but the Happy Buddha has become an globally iconic symbol as Feng Shui practices spread to the West and is beloved by both adults and children alike!
