The concept of "Jade Goddess of Mercy for male and Jade Buddha for female" is actually a folk supplication and also a folk custom . In the past,men were responsible for engaging in trade , taking the imperial examinations and the like.They were outside all year round and inclined to be fiery while the Goddess of Mercy in the Chinese Buddhism is a female,a symbol of mercy and gentleness.Therefore,the concept of "Jade Goddess of Mercy for male" delivers a hope that male people can become gentle.The "Buddha" in "Jade Buddha for female" refers to Maitreya Bodhisattva instead of Buddha Shakyamuni and is in the shape of Maitreya Bodhisattva with a potbelly. As far as ancient people know,women were thought to be narrow-minded while the shape of Maitreya Bodhisattva with smile and a potbelly is meant for happiness and generosity.Therefore,the concept of "Jade Buddha for female" conveys a hope that female people can be a little bit calmer and more generous. In general,the concept of "Jade Goddess of Mercy for male and Jade Buddha for female" also means the complementation for male and female,i.e.,male can adopt some feminine merits for offsetting their own shortcomings while female can adopt some masculine merits for making up their own shortcomings.

Both male and female can wear Jade Goddess of Mercy and Jade Buddha. The importance of jade lied in fate.It's fine as long as you like it. The development of jade culture is greatly influenced by Buddhism.There are specialized institutions studying and developing Buddhism jewellery,especially Jade Goddess of Mercy and Jade Buddha pendants which are very popular among customers. Salesperson is often heard to indoctrinate customers with the concept of "Jade Goddess of Mercy for male and Jade Buddha for female" which actually has no basis at all.Goddess of Mercy and Buddha are respectively goddess and god to whom male and female believers pray for luck,happiness,disasters quelling and misfortunes prevention.Some men who don't believe in god also like potbelly Buddha wearing a smile.Since the Buddha can "smile at life and can be tolerant and generous“大度”(a homophone for Chinese character potbelly“大肚”)",wearing a Buddha pedant,you can deal with various situations calmly .There are some men who take a fancy to potbelly Buddha pedant and even want to buy it,but finally give up the purchasing idea because of the concept of "Jade Goddess of Mercy for male and Jade Buddha for female". At the Ancient Yunnan Jade Store or Ancient Yunnan Network Mall,there also exist many customers with such scruple.However,as for me,as the saying goes,it's fine as long as you like it ,and just let it be.

In the past,male people are responsible for engaging in trade , taking the imperial examinations ,and the like.They are outside all year round .So the most important thing for them is safety. Goddess of Mercy can keep you safe and in the meantime,people hope under its protection to live and work smoothly,have a healthy body and see everything go well. With its shape like a female,Goddess of Mercy in the jade culture is a combination of the Goddess of Mercy in the Buddhism and the Queen of Heaven in the Taoism through extraction by Chinese people for thousands of years. Buddha,also called Maitreya,is future Buddha that can bring people an aura of blessing and harmony so that they can wish for a beautiful tomorrow.
