Just got the effect recently.
The Buddha can be handed out for inspection before and after the performance. The gimmick is small enough and ditiching it would not be a problem.
Cups to cover it could be borrowed but a small cup just enough to cover the Buddha would be great. It would be slightly more difficult if a bigger cup is used. Those who own Eye to Eye will know what I'm talking about.
Here's a little history about the Buddha which may help you in building patter around this effect.

The name of this Buddha is called Laughing or Smiling Buddha and sometimes know as Happy Buddha. He was a Buddhist Zen master in China. He stands for prosperity, happiness and longevity. Though he has already attained Nirvana, the Chinese people also believe that he will be reincarnated. He was therefore called Buddha of the Future (Maitreya Buddha) and will take over the roll of Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha) when the earth is reborn.
It is believed that rubbing his belly will bring good luck and prosperity.

Hm, And with the buddha, you could conceivably cover it with 5-6 cups making the revelation that much stronger than the 50-50 chance you get with eye to eye....

Try here.

Search for Buddha and it should be on the second page.

It's $10 less expensive than eye to eye.

And you don't have to stuff gimmicks you know where! Smile

Here's the complete description if you don't want to hunt it down.

The Magic Bouddha by Jean-Pierre Vallarino
The magician displays a small Buddha figure, along with three small cups, all of which may be examined by the audience. The magician turns his back (or may even leave the room entirely) and a spectator hides the small Buddha under any one of the three cups. Once it’s hidden, they can even mix the cups around as much as they like. When the magician turns back around, he simply waves his hand over each of the cups and without a single question or funny move, states which cup is hiding the Buddha figure!
> The cups may be borrowed
> Magician may even leave the room while the spectators hide the Buddha figure
> No ‘fishing’ or funny moves-you can instantly tell which cup the Buddha is under-works every time
> Includes instructions in French and English.

From what I've heard, I have a feeling you'll like it. I'm contemplating buying it myself. $25 isn't bad at all...

I beleive the proper name for this budda is
"Hotai" pronounced "Ho - tie" in Chinese. He is also the god of "Fertility" :O) Smile

In Chinese, we call him Xiao Fuo. "Xiao" = Smiling, "Fuo" = Buddha.
In Singapore, you can see lots of people rubbing the Laughing Buddha's tummy for luck. Smile
