三泰虎4月18日译文,“笑佛”是在全世界 最受欢迎的幸运符,但围绕他的名字存在困惑。作为中国民间传说的神,他因快乐的表情而被称为布袋(Budai)。他经常以闲逛的欢乐和尚形象出现,挺着一 个隆起的大肚子,穿着长袍,背着一个布袋。有时候,他坐在童子拉着的马车上,拿着一把许愿扇。而在日本,他被称为Hotei,是七大幸运神之一,是贫苦儿 童的守护神。

外文标题:Is Buddha lucky for your home?



He’s a lucky charm, but is he really the Buddha?

The ‘Laughing Buddha’ is the most popular luck charm being passed around the world. But there’s a confusion surrounding his name. A Chinese folklore deity, he is called the Budai for his jolly countenance. He’s often seen as a wandering, cheerful monk, with a large protruding stomach, wearing a robe, and carrying sackcloth. Sometimes he shown seated on a cart drawn by boys, or holding an oogi (a wish giving fan). While Japan refers to him as Hotei, one of the Seven Lucky Gods and the patron of poor children, some Buddhist traditions believe him to be Maitreya, the future Buddha. Messages of peace, generosity, wisdom and kindness are attributed to him. According to legend, if one rubs the Laughing Buddha’s great belly, it brings forth wealth, good luck, and prosperity.



Budai is often confused for the Buddha in West. But in reality, the Chinese name Budai has no connection with the Sanskrit word, Buddha.



The ‘Laughing Buddha’ as Hotei is also said to be the patron saint of restaurateurs and fortunetellers.


Charm quotient

The ‘Laughing Buddha’ is popular as a house-warming gift. It is best to be gifted one, than buying it, should be kept on an elevated surface facing the main door, and never on the floor. It should also not be kept in the bedroom or the dining room.

You can purchase one if you like it. Receiving it as a gift is also auspicious. Just ensure, the presence of laughing Buddha makes you happy.


krishnan sankaran (Chennai)
Whether it brings luck or not it is bringing money for those who are selling.


Padmakar (Mumbai)
It is like any other show piece in the house, it has nothing to do with bringing good luck or prosperity, no matter where you keep the piece. I like it just because it looks funny and fun is good for health.

    • 佛数如恒河沙,说是一也没错,说不是一也没错。真正的弥勒佛三十二相庄严,八十随形好,我敢说看见真佛的人眼睛都不会眨一下~每个佛世界,佛的庄严形象都是此世界第一大丈夫相.以我之前的修行也只见到不过二三尊佛像而已~到弥勒佛成佛时期的世界那时候的人们尊崇唯识论,听说那时的人们眼光如斗,非常矍铄,头大,眼睛大,现在的人看起来就象外星人似的.可见那时的人智力堪比神仙般啊.真不知道以后有缘会遇到弥勒佛教授我佛法不, 那得等几十亿年啊—好漫长啊

  1. 通知 : 中华人民共和国最新法律公布如下:为抢沙发和板凳的而不及时发言者判学阿三上厕所100天并上完后用左手抓饭吃100天(不准用筷、勺。刀叉等)即刻生效。请大家自觉遵守

  2. 人家印度人,就是要扫除以巴基斯坦伊斯兰教为首的“恐怖主义”(见大量三哥评论)、以印度耆那教、佛教徒为首的“旁门左道”(见安贝德卡尔的遭遇)、以锡克教为首的“暴力主义”(见蓝星)、以东亚传统信仰为首的“封建迷信”(见本文)……,然后高高兴兴的走自己的恒河大道。总之,如果你不是印度教徒,那么不是混蛋就是二逼。印度人信印度教,看不惯就滚乡下。。。

    • 越迷信的人越排斥别的想法,只认为自己才是真理,所以对他们来说,印度宗教宗教迷信不是迷信,是真理,是文化,是理所当然的,其他的文化宗教才是迷信。我在百度知道也见过类似的,一个人问某个中国传统说法有什么忌讳;下面一个人开头就说,没有什么忌讳!这是迷信!…因为我是个比较百无禁忌的人,所以他无论回答传统的说法还是劝导不需要过于在意这些流于表面的东西我多觉得没问题。但是他说完这句话后,接下就说,上帝才是真神,只有信上帝才…..(此处省略一百字)…这明显是排除异己的宗教疯子,对他来说,只有自己的迷信才是正确的,别的都是错误的。

  3. qwerty (world)lol, people and their superstitions! make me laugh哈哈,人们的迷信让我笑死了_____________________________________________________难道这世上还有比印度更迷信的国家?三哥就是三哥!放屁完全不知道脸红啊。

  4. 印度佛教已经消失了,印度人改信佛教吧,这才是好的宗教。印度教就是垃圾。还把人分成等级。奴隶社会的东西。还是佛教好与时具进/

  5. 印度在大选,那是世界多重大的事件呢 ,如果我能投票的话我要投票给穆迪,我看好穆迪…印度朋友我支持你们选他,他是梦想的缔造者 ,他是狮子 给他10年 印度能世界第一.让世界颤抖. 要相信

  6. 记得很久以前,不管大人(主要是妇女)、小孩只要看见和自己有仇的人倒霉了都会说,阿弥陀佛(幸灾乐祸的意思)。
