This cute statue is a symbol of happiness and an innocent contented joy. Buddha’s belly is said to signify bountiful wealth and prosperity, by stroking it, it is believed to bring much luck. The laughing Buddha must always be invited into his new home, resulting in positive Chi and much happiness.
You can place the Buddha in areas where there is conflict energy (East in 2022) to help harmonise as well as where the 3 Killings are located (facing North in the North in 2022). It also helps in the South West in 2022 where the Sui Po energy is located facing South West.
