The hand carved laughing Budai figure is often confused with the meditative buddha but it is different, the budai is seen as a large man and this is because he symbolises an abundance. He is there to remind you that instead of having a scarcity mindset where resources are limited, there is an abundance of money, and food, and that you can get everything that you want out from life.
The budai character is popular throughout Chinese culture. To some people the laughing buddha is seen as a poor man that is happy showing you that you can be happy with what you have right now but having things like this around you will be a gentle reminder that you can achieve everything and retrieve anything that you desire. For me, he represents wealth and happiness, but what would you like an abundance of?
