Our jadeite jade Happy Buddha pendant is depicted holding a sack of his few belongings under his arm. This is because Happy Buddha was also known as Budai in ancient China which means “cloth sack”. Happy Buddha was a historical figure who existed in the China during the 10th century and he was always seen carrying the sack filled with his few possessions. He was indeed a person of good and loving character and the pendant is believed to bring luck and prosperity to the buyer. Furthermore, Chinese Buddhists believe that Happy Buddha is an incarnation of the Buddha of the Future – Maitreya.
