Laughing Buddha with Parasol

The parasol in Buddhism is symbolically a device which casts a shadow, and therefore, offers protection from heat. The concept of the parasol providing shelter from the sun’s heat translates into the Buddha’s teachings protecting us from the “heat” of negative forces like greed, lust and suffering, obstacles in the path of the spirit’s journey towards enlightenment.

The Parasol gives protection by deflecting misfortune and offering protection.
Buddha holds a parasol which gives protection and deflects misfortune.
Buddha seated and holding a parasol over his shoulder will help bring happiness.
