- Ghau is a small prayer box worn as a pendant by Buddhists as portable shrines where prayers and sacred relics are kept and used during their travel to hold their holy deity inside. Now, Prayer Box pendants are often used as jewelry or personal adornment. The Ghau opens to a concealed inner space and is traditionally used by Tibetan Buddhists to hold a picture of their favorite deity or Lama, a folded-up scroll of sacred mantras, special herbs, or sacred relics.
- The white metal isn’t as powerful as gemstones when it comes to direct healing, but it’s considered the most powerful conductor and amplifier. One of the great things about white metal is that it works with all crystals, gemstones, and other metals such as copper…and actually boosts their natural abilities. This means it’s excellent to use with jewelry- which is great because healing is best when close to the skin.
- In Buddhism, the endless knot (Skt. Shrivastava; Tib. dpal be) is a closed, graphic ornament composed of right-angled, intertwined lines. It overlaps without a beginning or an end, symbolizing the Buddha’s endless wisdom and compassion. It indicates continuity as the underlying reality of existence.
