What research and others have to say about Laughing Buddha and Good Luck ...
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Budai (Chinese: 布袋; pinyin: bùd� i) or Budai Luohan, pronounced Hotei in Japanese, is a figure that appears throughout Chinese culture. He is a representation of contentment and abundance, and is sometimes seen as a deity by religious Taoists and Buddhists. His image graces many temples, restaurants, amulets, and businesses. He is almost always shown smiling or laughing, hence his nickname in Chinese, the Laughing Buddha (Chinese: 笑佛).
Budai is based on an eccentric Chinese Zen (Chán) monk who lived in the time of the Liang Dynasty. He has since become incorporated into a number of Buddhist, Taoist and Shinto traditions. Some Buddhist traditions use him as an representation of the Bodhisattva Maitreya, the predicted Buddha to succeed Gautama Buddha in the future. In Japan, Hotei persists in folklore as one of the Seven Lucky Gods (Shichi Fukujin).
Phra Sung Ga Jaii symbolizes prosperity, identified by the bag he carries on one shoulder. It is believed that rubbing his belly will bring good luck and fortune.
Phra Sung Ga Jaii or Happy Buddha is very popular all Chinese people.

"Lucky Happy Buddha" collection
as a non-asian I am willing to give anything a try that may bring me good fortune
The owner refers to his collection this way and said to me that rubbing the Buddha belly brings "Good Fortune". I very much like his collection as all the Buddha's are smiling and happy but as to them bringing good fortune .. hmmm.
While at the collector's home I thought I would give it a try.. why not? To be honest with you I have had a run of "bad luck" since Friday, February 13.
I touched the gold, he asked me to keep a gold egg that was with one of the Buddha's and I rubbed the belly. We proceed to his office and within 10 minutes I received a long distance phone call from Bangkok. And this is the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
Been working on trying to get a client for about a month and they said "No" to our offer and terms, and this may be the Biggest Deal of the Year for us. Now I get a phone call, 10 minutes after touching the gold and rubbing the Buddha belly and the client says, "Yes" to our terms and wants to transfer funds to us.
After leaving the clients house I returned home to find another good piece of news. Now I am not just saying this. IT is the Truth.
So guess what??
I will be returning to the collector's house and I will be rubbing Buddha belly for Good Fortune again.
