The Laughing Buddha is regarded as one of the gods of wealth.
It brings prosperity, success and financial gains to the house.
The location of placing the Laughing Buddha is important.
It has to be placed at some 30" approximate height and should be facing the main door directly.
The energy that enters the house from the main door is greeted by the Laughing Buddha and the energy is activated, and turns highly prosperous.
If this location is not possible, the next best place to keep the Laughing Buddha, is on a side table, or a corner table which is diagonally opposite to the front door and facing the door.
It is not advisable to keep the Laughing Buddha in the bedroom or in the dining room.
This god of wealth is not worshiped or prayed to, but just displayed, as its presence is purely symbolic and auspicious.
I want to clarify here that many forms of the Laughing Buddha are available, some in the standing position, some in the sitting position. All are fine, but the sitting position one, with a bag of money behind him, is better among all the forms.
Another very popular energizer for wealth and prosperity are the Lucky Charm cards or Coins. These Lucky Charm cards or Coins can be placed in a person's wallet, purse/ pocket or can be worn.
The Laughing Buddha Charm Cards symbolize happiness, wealth and good luck.
Another type of Lucky Chant Card or Coin normally used is the Kuan yin Buddha Charm Card/Coin which is the symbol of safety and protection.It is quite a useful one for people engaged in hazardous professions like pilots, sailors, etc.
