Big Tibetan Carved 8 Auspicious Symbol Yak Bone Bracelet

Big Tibetan Carved 8 Auspicious Symbol Yak Bone Bracelet
Adjustable Tibetan bracelet made of 8 oval shaped yak bone slips, each carved with one of the famous Tibetan 8 Auspicious Symbols in vintage style, roughly for the size of 18 * 15 mm. 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 bracelet requires a long and tedious process.

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?
