Laughing Buddha Says -- "Everything I've ever Needed to Learn from Life I Learned from Bumper Stickers"



The Laughing Buddha (Hotei) Travels the country spreading joy and happiness wherever he goes. His big belly is a symbol of happiness, good luck and generosity. Hotei is the deity of happiness, laughter, abundance and the wisdom of contentment. The image of the Hotei Buddha is almost always seen carrying a cloth or linen sack. It is usually filled with many precious items, including candy for children, food, or the woes of the world. His prayer mala is carved with a symbol meaning "good fortune". His large elongated earlobes are a sign of wisdom. The bag represents fulfillment of wishes or can also be the blessings of Buddha. Happiness is one of the Laughing Buddha's greatest gifts. Many believe that rubbing the Buddha's belly brings joy, luck and prosperity
