[tb1_0463]

Big Tibetan Carved 8 Auspicious Symbol Yak Bone Bracelet
Tibetan bracelet made of 8 yak bone slips, each adorned with one of the 8 Auspicious symbols (Lucky Symbols). To make a symbol, the craftsman first cut the yak bone into small blocks and then sand them down by hand; then the yak bone is dyed a dark brown using tea; the last step is to hand carve the symbol onto it. Making such a necklace requires a long and tedious process. BTW, the bracelet can be fastened by using a slide bead! There are two types available (choice is yours), as shown in the following pictures!

The eight Auspicious Symbols represent the core of the Tibetan religion - Compassion is what makes our lives meaningful. It is the source of all lasting Happiness and Joy, and it is the foundation of a Good Heart, the heart of one who acts out of a desire to help others. The Eight Auspicious Signs are:

  • Dhvaja - the banner signifies the victory of Buddhism
  • Kalasa - the vase represents the treasury of all spiritual wealth
  • Padma - the lotus flower implies purity
  • Sankha - the white conch shell symbolizes the blessedness of turning to the right and proclaiming the glory of the saints by its humming sound
  • Srivatsa - the endless knot denote the endless cycle of rebirth
  • Two Fish - epitomize being rescued from the ocean of the misery of earthly existence
  • Wheel of Dharma - embodies the teaching of Buddha's doctrine
  • White Parasol - indicates protection from evil desires

By wearing such bracelet, it is believed that it will protect you from all evil spirits and bring peace and harmony to your life. Definitely an exquisite and valuable Handicraft! It won't last long, why wait?
