I have hear of that laughing Buddhas are lucky - but only if someone gives one to you. If you buy one for yourself, apparently it doesn't work. Is this true?

I don't believe in it either - I think it's an invention of the tourist trade, to persuade people to buy them as gifts. I heard the story about how it is lucky to receive a laughing buddha as a gift in Hong Kong.

i agree with you totally. these things are used largely for tourism and material aspects and i donot find anything appealing but the aesthetic value. thank you for coming back. keep sharing..

i was very much into feng shui before i go back to church last year in april...i actually consulted a feng shui master on how to decorate my room....but things doesnt work out as expected...so i will say that i dont believe in feng shui anymore after that.

i really appreciate. it's always commendable to learn from experiences and i must congratulate you. personally, eunice, i donot have any faith in these things. i feel what we experience is the impact of what we have done and i would like to consider God's grace to add to it and that's it. thank you very much dear keep sharing

I like the laughing buddha, but I don't have one as I don't like to keep statues & figuines in my house. I've not heard that it will have positive effects of feng shui, but it's definitely good to look at one when you are feeling down.

u are absolutely right wyykidd. even i feel the same way. laughing budhha might have aesthetic value and is really good to improve on the ambience of my house but as afr as the positive effect is concerned it's a big NO NO for me. i donot have faith in stuff like this. thax for sharing

I do not have a laughing budhha because i don't think that some kind of stuff can bring luck or fortune. Maybe the ones which have can tell us more about it but i don't believe in it. I have some friends which have and told me that it didn't helped them with nothing. Good luck!
