My friend has a statue and there is some Chinese text on it. Can anyone translate it to English for me. Also, I would like to know more about this statue, any links, history about it, anything.

Thanks in advance.

    It is 招财纳福(SC)/招財納福(TC), literally translate them word by word: attracting wealth, bringing felicity. – 賈可 Jacky Jul 28 '17 at 9:06

Attracting money and happiness. It's very common to find these words under this specific buddha as it's its specialty.
