Budai the Laughing Buddha

Ever since I was an infant, I loved the stories about Jesus, and later on as a teenager I discovered Gautama Buddha and the “Laughing Buddha”.

I love the kind face with pronounced ears and the voluminous figure of the “Laughing Buddha”.

The “Laughing Buddha” originates from a Chinese monk and Divinity.
His name was Budai and he was a monk in the tradition of Gautama Buddha and lived around the 10th century BC.
He is often benamed as Buddha, as in the Awakened One or the Enlightened One.
Budai is renowned for his loving nature and fullhearted laughter.

Have fun with my drawing of Budai!
