Tibetan Jewelry in the form of Amulets and Talismans.

Tibet is uniquely positioned between China and India and is the highest country in the world with incredible mountains and history,

Tibetan civilization went through wars and sacrifice too many times, but it kept its strong believes in their values and culture. While Tibetans combine Indian and Chinese knowledge, it is interpreted through Tibetan context which makes it absolutely unique.

Tibetans are very proud of their ancient traditions and culture. SongtsenGampo, the Tibetan Emperor married Nepalese and Chinese wives and both of them brought beautiful statues of Buddha in to Tibetan civilization which are honored until modern times. Dalai Lama had to flee to India after 1959 due to China occupation and continues Tibetan practices with pride through his spiritual powers. Buddha brought precious traditions in to Tibetan culture which symbolizes Peace and Calmness. The knowledge we can learn from Tibetan traditions and history is mysterious and at the same time very spiritual.

Here are some of the most valued symbols and treasured Gods of Tibetan civilization which are often used as pocket amulets and talismans, jewelry and accessories:

  1. Buddha jewelry and amulets, what they represent:

    Buddha is God of Luck. He is the God of Happiness, Laughter and the Wisdom of Contentment. His big belly is a symbol of happiness, good luck and generosity. Buddha have a protective supernatural power. Buddha means "Awakened".

    Buddhais fully enlightened one and develops to perfection the qualities of generosity, discipline, renunciation, wisdom and energy. The Buddha was born 2600 years ago, and since then he is bringing good fortune and good luck to peoplewho is using buddha as personal amulet. It is also important to note that Buddha is not a name, but a title. Buddha teaches that the path to peace is through self-discipline which enlightens people to self-healing.

  2. Buddha All Seeing Third Wisdom Eye jewelry and amulets, what they represent:

    Tibetan oldest symbol of unity of all the things as well as the one way to reach enlightenment trough the Buddha's teachings. Above this is the Third Eye symbolizing the all-seeing Wisdom of the Buddha. Stimulates Intuition and Stability. The question mark below all seeing eyes symbolizes number 1 and represents unity of all things.  The pairs of eyes are in the state of meditation and can see in four directions and enriched in spiritual aura. Third seeing eye of Buddha can be seen as inner and outer vision transforming from wisdom in to seeing the truth.

  3. Kwan Yin Quan jewelry and amulets, what they represent:

     

    Kwan Yin Quan is known as the Goddess of Blessings & Healing. She is the most beloved and revered of the Chinese deities. Kwan Yin Quan is the Divine Mother we all long for: merciful, tender, compassionate, loving, protecting, caring, healing, and wise. Many believe that she is the female representation of Avalokitesvara, who is the Tibetan and Nepalese God of Blessings. In Asia, statues of Kwan Yin Quan can be found in front of, or on the grounds of, many Buddhist temples. Pre-revolutionary China, this semi divine being was honored in virtually every home; she was the most powerful being in the entire Chinese pantheon. According to tradition Kwan Yin Quan had been an ordinary person who had followed the path of wisdom and service until after many incarnations she reached the supreme goal, nirvana. Full of resolve she exclaimed: "If in time to come I am to obtain power to benefit all beings, may I now be endowed with a thousand hands, a thousand eyes." Instantly her wish was granted, and since that moment Kwan Yin Quan has appeared in so many different forms, and in so many lands, it does seem that she has a thousand eyes and a thousand hands to Help those in need. As the Kuan Yin Sutra states, when one turns to Kwan Yin Quan, to the self within which images the divine self, a raging fire becomes a placid pool; chains that bind one's hands and feet are loosened; beasts flee, and snakes lose their poison. Also in times of great danger "miracles" do occur. For when self-nature is awakened, and blessings active, we are Kwan Yin Quan - the incarnation of mercy and love. Kwan Yin Quan amulets and talismans help remind us of this. They speak to our spiritual self.
