The Laughing Buddha is an iconic symbol of happiness and good fortune. Usually holding some representation of money or gold - a golden orb, an ingot, a bulging sack, coins, or a gourd (all symbols of abundance) - he embodies all our hopes for happiness and prosperity.
The Chinese Buddha, also know as the Laughing Buddha, the Lucky Buddha or Maitreya Buddha (the Buddha yet to come), is the symbol of happiness, wealth and an innocent contented joy. Buddha's belly is said to signify bountiful wealth and prosperity. Stroking the Buddha's belly is believed to bring much luck. The laughing Buddha must always be invited into his new home, resulting in positive Chi which can bring nothing but happiness into your home.
