Don’t worry, be happy! That’s the mantra of the Laughing Buddha (Matreiya or Future Buddha). And that’s exactly what this intricately designed and colorful composition of the Laughing Buddha will help you achieve. Just the sight of his jolly demeanor and infectious smile will soothe the mind and lighten the heart.
The Laughing Buddha is a common figure in homes of both Japan and China as a deliverer of good luck, contentment, and prosperity. He brings happiness to others through his appearance. He holds a Wu Lou (calabash or gourd) in his right hand to protect your health and a string of prayer beads in his left hand to enhance the element of peace and happiness as well as ward off negativity. He’s shown wearing a red robe, best used for suppressing quarrelsome star #3 which brings disputes, aggravations, hostilities, lawsuits, and fights.
The Red Robe Sitting Laughing Buddha with Wu Lou can be displayed practically in any part of the home or office except in the toilet areas and kitchen to counter unfavorable energies and to attract abundance, happiness, and good fortune. It also serves to add an atmosphere of joy, contentment, and serenity.
