Buddha Figurines

These red and gold polyresin Happy Buddhas are 2" high.  Each has a different posture and reflects its own purpose or intent. There is one for Abundance, Long Life, Happy Home, Safe Travels, Love and Spiritual Journey.

  • Safe Travels (Adventurous): Stick w/bag over shoulder, holding wealth ball
  • Abundance (Prosperity): Hands raised above head, holding Ru-Yi pot (bowl of plenty)
  • Spiritual Journey (Longevity): Gourd of enlightenment hanging from stick, fan in one hand, necklace of beads
  • Long Life (Happiness): Seated on bag of blessings, one hand raised holding wealth ball, Ru-Yi pot in other hand
  • Love (Enlightened): Seated w/feet together, holding wealth ball, bag over shoulder
  • Happy Home (Tranquility): Seated w/parasol behind back

Perhaps the best way to determine what each Buddha signifies for you is to understand the meaning of each of his symbols.

The Ru-Yi is known as the bowl of plenty (it is also the shape of Chinese ingots) and signifies plenty, abundance, and wealth.

The bag is said to be filled with blessings (including children) that the Happy Buddha distributes freely.

The parasol deflects misfortune, thereby offering protection.

The Buddha waves the fan to banish troubles and misfortune.

The Wu-Lou (gourd) is a symbol of longevity and good health.

The wealth ball is sometimes seen as a pearl. In China, the pearl represents immortality, potentiality, and wisdom. Treasure dragons were believed to live in caves deep in the earth and to possess a magical pearl that multiplied if it was touched. This pearl was a symbol of the most valuable treasure, wisdom.

The necklace of beads is the mala, the Buddhist string of prayer beads.
