Good Luck Charm?? on Aksa Beach

Had gone for a colleague’s birthday breakfast to “The Retreat” On Aksa Beach, Madh island. While walking down the beach, I found this image of Buddha, half buried in the sand.

Back in office, I did some googling to figure out the exact nature of luck this guy could bring me: Its apparently wealth

Some more trivia on the buddha:

“The Chinese laughing Buddha is associated to a roving Ch’an (Zen) monk of the Liang Dynasty in China. He was famous for his benevolent and cheerful nature. He used to carry a cloth like bag wherever he went. The bag was called ‘Pu- Tai’ in indigenous Chinese language. Hence the monk came to be known as ‘Pu-tai Hoshang’ or ‘hemp-bag monk’. Sculptures and statues of the Laughing Buddha often depict him as carrying a sack that is filled with ‘goodies’ like sweets, food and rice plants. The latter is a symbol of wealth”
