The laughing Buddha, better known as Budai or Maitreya (The Future Buddha), represents a traveling buddha who is content with only the few things that he needs.
He reminds us to be grateful for what we do have, to stay happy in the face of obstacles, and to continue to grow towards ultimate happiness and enlightenment. He epitomizes the ideals of our company Backpack Buddha.
This Laughing Buddha pendant is made from pure Obsidian, which is known as strongly protective stone that helps to shield negative energies. The perfect stone for the positive laughing Buddha.
