This one-of-a-kind, fully adjustable solid silver bracelet is made in Nepal and features the mantra of compassion, 'om mani padme hung' in traditional Sanskrit script. The mantra invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion. This bracelet also includes: beautiful roping and intricate filigree details, dorje symbols on either side of the mantra, Garuda accents at the adjustable opening, as well as a hand-engraved dragon design on the inside.
Symbolically, a dorje represents the 'thunderbolt of enlightenment.' Once "enlightened," the observer can detach from the personal importance of money, romance, food and even life itself. Garuda symbolizes the space element and the power of the sun, which can dry up the waters; he represents the spiritual energy of that which devours the delusions of jealousy. Tibetan dragons are protectors of Buddhism whose thunderous voices awaken us from delusion.
Bracelet measures approximately 7 inches around, about 1 inch thick, and is fully adjustable.
