Naija Twitter Users And "Smiling Budha" by Naijabred: 12:35am On Mar 30
Smiling Buddha suppose to be the code name of India's first successful nuclear bomb after its testing on the 18th of May, 1974. Unless Smiling Buddha may as well be referring to the semi-historical Budai/Pu-tai - A bald fat Chinesse monk in the 10th Century named Ch'i-t'zu who was popular with the children and often claim to be a reincarnate of Maitreya Buddha (Buddha of the future age). The "true" Buddha (Shakyamuni Gautama Buddha), was always known to be in deep meditation while Pu-tai Buddha, who would later become an emblem of good fortune, happiness and joy for children and less privileged, is known to be of an always happy air.



Since March 20th, 2019 when a message relating to the good fortune that may be brought around by posting a picture of a Smiling Buddha hit the twitter and with few twitter users testifying that the smiling buddha brings about good fortune. Posting photos of smiling Buddha has become a trending tradition and Smiling Buddha became a top trending topic with not less than 20 thousand tweets all boiling down on the "Smiling Buddha". Naija Tweeter users from all corridors of areas and religions have twitted religiously on their need for Budha to handle their finances.



Maybe this Smiling Buddha thing will relieve us of the rigorous Logo Benz, Logo Honda we are experiencing these days.
