The Laughing Buddha is a symbol of happiness and prosperity. Called the 'Budai’ in Chinese, he was an eccentric Zen monk who lived during the later Liang dynasty.Some Buddhist traditions consider him a Buddha or ‘Bodhisattva’, usually Maitreya (the future Buddha). His large protruding stomach and jolly smile have given him the common designation “Laughing Buddha”.
