My friend gifted me a laughing buddha which thumbs is broken,&some irregular,what would be the effect of this?
The effect could be as a result of poor care and handling of the Buddha. It could be that your friend used it for the wrong reason or made the changes him or herself. You can repair it to look presentable.
Are you Buddhist? If not I would kindly decline the gift.
Bad care, it also might be very old to where it is getting misshapen.
he probably won't place piano
He gave you a piece of rubbish is the most obvious answer, maybe this is all he could afford to give you, or maybe this is what he thinks of you deep down.
