    Laughing Buddha




    Hotei or Bu-Dai is better known as the obese Laughing Buddha. He has become incorporated into Buddhist & Shinto culture and is based on an eccentric Chinese Chan (Zen) monk. His image graces many temples, restaurants, and amulets. Hotei has become a deity of contentment and abundance, Taoist in origin and persists in Japanese folklore as one of the seven happy gods, or shichi fukujin. The Laughing Buddha derives from the time of the Liang Dynasty in China. Hotei is theorized to have begun as a real Buddhist monk in China over 1,000 years ago.
