This book emits such peace and tranquility. The euphoric figure on the cover as if speaks inside so that his spirit can sink deep within us and become daily practices. Sakshi’s ability to simplify big Buddhist philosophy and combine them with the simple Zen-like attitude of Laughing Buddha is brilliant. This lovely, small book contains profound observation, stories and wisdom to be applied in our daily lives. I am pleased that I picked up this book on laughing Buddha, which is a joy to read.

The issues like the art of mindful living and the living with an unpleasant situation in life are discussed excellently with practical wisdom. This ...more

Laughing Buddha is the symbol of prosperity and happiness. Within us there is always a child Buddha, who is relaxed, happy and full of fun. This book is about awakening that happy Buddha within us.
Historically, Laughing Buddha is an incarnation of Maitreya Buddha. From time to time Maitreya Buddha manifested in this world to help people. Normally, the people of the age do not recognize him. This book talks about that kind Buddha.
I loved the book. I enjoyed the writing style of the book.
