Our Happy Buddha pendant was hand carved from the best grade A natural jadeite jade sourced from Kachin State located in Northern Myanmar. As a result the buyer can rest assured they have procured the finest Myanmar jadeite which is free from all artificial enhancements and infusions of any kind. Gem quality Myanmar jadeite will retain its value over time and even appreciate in value, similar to diamonds and precious metals.
Happy Buddha is a highly venerated figure in China. He is fondly remembered as a good natured monk wondering the Chinese countryside in the 10th century spreading good cheer and encouragement to the less fortunate. Additionally, Chinese Buddhists believe that he was an incarnation of Maitreya – the Buddha of the Future. Maitreya awaits in the Tusita Buddhist Heaven for his time to come when he will return to the earthly realm. According to the Maitreya Prophecy, he will rediscover the Dharma and end all the suffering of sentient life.
This piece features a translucent orange red coloration. The translucency will encourage inner reflection, tranquility and confidence in all who observe it.
