Product Description

Buddhist tradition tells of an enlightened monk who traveled the land bringing happiness and good fortune where ever he went. Some say that he also handed out candy to the children he met along his journey. Here we see the enlightened one or "Buddha" in a moment of rest. He reclines against his bag in a remarkably casual pose with his robe, a symbol of humility, sliding off his right shoulder. Despite the happy expression and comfortable position he retains an element of spirituality. The beads in his right hand are prayer beads, a symbol of his faith and devotion. The bag he leans against is a traditional monk's travel bag, a symbol of their poverty in that they owned no more than they could carry. The Happy Buddha's bag is said to bring contentment and prosperity to any place he visits and take away pain and worry when he leaves. The fact that he is leaning on the bag is an indication that he is keeping it safe. For that reason statues like this have been used as totems to protect the wealth of homes and businesses for many centuries. It is difficult to imagine a more cheerful watchman for any home or office.
