Laughing Buddha in Japan: Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan


In Japan, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan rose to great fame, not for his Qawwalis only, but because of his resemblance to ‘The Laughing Buddha’. Laughing Buddha or Budai in folklore is admired for his happiness, plenitude, and wisdom of contentment. One belief popular in folklore maintains that rubbing his belly brings wealth, good luck, and prosperity.
