Our jadeite jade Happy Buddha pendant is a symbol of wealth and prosperity that first appeared in China during the 10th century. Also known as Budai (cloth sack) he was a person of good and loving character who traveled the countryside spreading good cheer and inspired those experiencing hardship. Happy Buddha left a lasting impression on the Chinese people, so much so that he is also believed to be an incarnation of the Buddha of the future – Maitreya. The Maitreya Prophecy says that he will return to the earthly realm in the distant future when the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha have been long forgotten and he will rediscover the Dharma. Maitreya is to be the final Buddha and the prophecy says he will eliminate the suffering of all sentient beings when he returns.
