The "Laughing" Buddha that people often see in restaurants is not The
Buddha,
Gautama Buddha. Rather, he is a character in Chinese folklore called Budai.
Budai (Chinese:布袋) or Budai Luohan, pronounced Hotei in Japanese, also known
as the Laughing Buddha, is the person who might be the next Buddha after
Gautama Buddha. He has become incorporated into Buddhist, Taoist and Shinto
culture and is based on a Chinese monk.
