Red Jasper Laughing Buddha~CRRJLBUD. The Laughing Buddha emerged from Chinese folktales of the 10th century. The original stories of the Laughing Buddha centered on a Ch'an monk named Ch'i-t'zu, or Qieci, from Fenghua, in what is now the province of Zhejiang. Ch'i-t'zu was an eccentric but much-loved character who worked small wonders, such as predicting the weather. Chinese history assigned the date of 907-923 CE to Ch't'zu's life, which means he lived considerably later than the historical Shakyamuni, the true Buddha. One of the best feng shui locations for a Laughing Buddha is close to the front door so that you can see it as you come home. Laughing Buddha is considered to be a patron of children. Laughing Buddha is used in feng shui to bring good luck, abundance, happiness, success, good health; any feng shui bagua area can benefit from the sparkling energy of the Laughing Buddha.
