More About this Item


Description: A Chinese Jade Carved Ji Gong (also known as "The Laughing Mad Monk") with a smiling facial expression holding a fan and prayer beads with his hands and a wine gourd tied to the back of his waist. He wears a hat with the Chinese character "Fo" (Buddha) at the front. Ji Gong believes that cultivation is through genuine Dharma practice from the heart and not by superficiality, outward pretense, blind rituals and mere abstinence of meat and wine. He is the Protector of the poor, weak and underdogs and he upholds social justice, law and rectitude. He punishes vice and evil and he saves lives and cures diseases through miracles and brings fortune to the poor. He is believed to be the manifestion of Amitabha Buddha. His unorthodox and care-free method of cultivation earns him the name of "The Laughing Mad Monk" or "The Crazy Monk" as he only outwardly delights in eating dog meat and drinking wine. Later people came to the realization and honored and revered him with his saying "The wine and meat may flow through the intestines but the Buddha remains in the heart". Even the Taoists revered him too and incorporated him into Taoist pantheon of divinities. Period: Qing Dynasty (AD 1644 - 1912). Height: 10.7cm. 清 玉雕濟公像
