Fuk, Luk and Sau, the fengshui’s three lucky immortals represent specific celestial energies for human benefit. According to fengshui sources they are also called the three wise men or the three Star Gods who are the popular deities of wealth, Prosperity, and Longevity.
Fuk is a Chinese character believed to be the personification of planet Jupiter which means blessings of happiness, health and good luck. He holds a scroll (perceived as the importance of learning) or a child (to signify the transmission of good luck to future generations). It is believed that Fuk is the personification of planet Jupiter.
Luk is often portrayed holding a golden ingot – the weath symbol or a ru yi – the symbol of power. Fame, success, stability and financial abundance is the energy he releases.
The immortal that is described with a high forehead and a warm smile in his face is Sau. He is holding a staff to show that he is very old – thus symbolizes longevity.
Proper display placement is essential to achieve the positive energies they endow. Place them in an area with high visibility side by side in one row in a specific order – Luk on the center with the promise of financial stability and success , Sau smiling on your right side offering gifts of long and peaceful life and Fuk on the left side with all the blessings and good luck energy. It is believed to be a bad feng shui to place the three wise men on low surfaces, in places directly facing the main door, facing the toilet or under the beam. It is best to display them in the high table or high shelf in the living room or office.
