Fuk Luk Sau

My home has these Fuk Luk Sau since the day we moved in (2000). They were moved around the living room many times. I would just clean them with a damp cloth. 

my most recent placement of the Fuk Luk Sau

Recently, I received a set of Fuk Luk Sau figurines

so I placed them at the comfy table of my new sofa set

This time, I guess they needed a bath.

They were cleaned..

I arranged them according to the placement of the gift.

I put the smiling Buddha facing the main door.


The Fuk Luk Sau, meaning “Three Lucky Immortals / Star Gods”, are a very popular symbol to display in Asian homes or offices. Fuk Luk Sau bring authority, success, fame and fortune.
These three star deities are strong icons of the most essential aspirations on which humankind depends; wealth, happiness and longevity. Each of these deities are often shown carrying with them different items with auspicious meanings – Fuk holds with him a scroll, which symbolizes beneficial inherent luck; he is also sometimes seen holding a child - which symbolizes good descendant luck. Luk, who is always seen in the center of the three deities, carries a gold ingot, or a “Ru Yi” (scepter of office), and symbolizes prosperity. Sau holds in his hands a staff and a Wu Lou or a peach (the fruit of immortality). Sau is a symbol of longevity and a healthy life.

  1. I guess they enjoyed their bath and now are all sparkling clean ready for CNY. You are doing a good job spring cleaning your home to get it ready for CNY despite being so busy at the shop. Really a super woman! :)

  11. I do not have FUK LUK SAU, I only have the Laughing Buddha. We hired a feng shui master to our house many years ago. He advised us to put next my wooden door and faced it inside my living room.

    1. The feng shui master said my kids will be laughing happily if the Laughing Buddha places at the corner. So, we just listened, and we do not switch its place at all until now.

    2. Since CNY is just around the corner, it is good to give everything a bath and a clean up. The entire house will sure look brand new again.

  22. Now your 3 statues seem to be in the correct order like what I have seen in many wealthy homes.

    1. thanks..I was very ignorant of their importance then..

      Delete
  23. i am not sure whether your 3 statues are placed in the auspicious position like facing the entrance door. Just my 2 cents.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. they are actually facing the living hall, not at the entrance door. Only the smiling buddha faces the door but not directly..

      Delete
  24. i also prefer the porcelain statues as they have colours. That is important for Feng Shui as well.
