Maitreya Bodhisattva represents the most basic conditions necessary to become a Buddhist: a smiling face and a big heart, represented by his big belly. Generally speaking, Happy Buddha is Budda Maitreya. There are 5 key points and features to present Budda Maitreya, that can be found on this piece: Smile: his smile represents endless happiness and mercy. When you stare at Happy Buddha, you will also be influenced by these feelings. Long ear lobe: his long ear lobes mean he can listen to different voices. Even if they are insults, he can bear them and answer with a happy smile. Round, big and fat belly: means his belly can contain everything in the world, whether it is good or bad, smart or silly? Naked chest and belly: symbolizes honesty, nothing to hide, no cheating. Cloth bag: it contains huge treasures and can bring fortune, as well as happiness to human beings.
