The jadeite jade used to create our Happy Buddha pendant was sourced in Kachin State located in Northern Myanmar. As a result, the buyer can rest assured that they have procured 100% pure grade A natural Myanmar jade that is free from all artificial enhancements or infusions of any kind. Gem quality jadeite will retain its value over time similar to precious metals and diamonds.
This piece has a unique coloration featuring faint yellow with green tint. Additionally, it is the translucent variety which will inspire a sense of inner reflection, tranquility and confidence in all who observe it.
Historically, Happy Buddha was a popular figure in ancient China that first appeared in the 10th century. He is fondly remembered as a wandering mendicant monk who spread good cheer and encouragement to the rural communities. In contemporary times, owning a Happy Buddha pendant is considered a symbol of wealth and prosperity.
Furthermore, Chinese Buddhists believe that Happy Buddha was an incarnation of the Future Buddha – Maitreya. The Maitreya Prophecy predicts that Maitreya will return to the earthly realm in the distant future when the Dharma teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha have been forgotten. As a result, he will rediscover the Dharma and end all suffering. According to the Mahayana scriptures, Maitreya will be the final Buddha.
