Laughing Buddha-Happy Buddha - Fat Buddha
One of the most adorable and accepted forms of symbolic Feng Shui is the Laughing Buddha or the Happy Buddha. The Laughing Buddha (also known as Maitreya) is always associated with happiness, wealth and prosperity. A very popular symbol of abundance, the Laughing Buddha is a symbol of happiness, good tidings, affluence and of course, wealth.

The Laughing Buddha or Fat Buddha statue is actually that of a Chinese monk called Ho Tai who was believed to be the re-incarnation of the Buddha by the Chinese people.  Buddha Statues inspire us to develop our inner qualities to achieve happiness, good fortune, and satisfaction in our lives.

The Laughing Buddha is known as the Buddha of Happiness. Legend has it that nothing would make this Deity happier than to see people's problems transform into happiness. Many Feng Shui consultants also refer the Laughing Buddha as the Buddha of Wealth as the image of the Buddha's happiness is believed to attract unlimited prosperity & abundance of wealth & luck. For those engaged in any kind of business, it's advisable to place this Deity in your office where you conduct business or negotiations with your customers.

Laughing Buddha is an excellent gift item to loved ones.

Laughing Buddha statues are available made of tera cota, resin, wood or metal and they are available with the Laughing Buddha with different props and pose. Each such pose has a different connotation.

Subsequent posts will explain the significance of Buddha in different poses.

God Bless!

Either place it in a corner of your working table such that it is facing you when you are working or if you deal with clients in your professional life, place it in such a position such that it faces the client when he is talking with you.

Alternatively, if you place it at home place it in a prominent place in your living room such that it is visible when the family is relaxing there.

I fail to understand why readers do not want to put their names with their queries and still expect a response from me.
