Day #50 (General + Sacred Space)
The Laughing Buddha.
There are many different types of Buddhas and each will have specific meanings and are represented by different countries. So Buddha has many different looks and poses.
The Laughing Buddha is from China and is one of Feng Shui’s favourite Spiritual Icons.
It is said that the Laughing Buddha came about from a 10th Century monk who was a little unconventional and believed that joy and laughter was lacking in his studies and teachings of Buddhism. He then became recognised as the Laughing Buddha – he was also considered a reincarnation of Buddha.
The Laughing Buddha can be placed in many rooms in your home or business except for wet rooms and main bedrooms.
Because he has such a positive, joyful and abundant presence he can go pretty much any where. Placing him near your front door is the most popular and suggested place as he will welcome in abundance and positivity.
It is also a common practice to rub his belly for good luck. By doing this you are handing your worries over to him where they can be transformed into good luck as he digests them.
Do not place him on the floor though as this is disrespectful.
A hall stand or stool is best.
