Nepal Handmade Lazurite and Red Coral Om Mani Padme Hum Brass Pendant
Material: Brass and Silver
Length: 4.1 cm
Diameter: 4.1 cm
Unique filigree disc-shaped pendant is hand-crafted by Tibetan in Nepal. It has multiple small lapis, lazurite and red coral gemstones inset. The filigree work on this exotic pendant is extremely detailed and very textural. This pendant comes strung on a simple black cord. The pendant is not flat but rather gently rounded on each side, giving it additional definition. Brass is the dominant metal for both of the symbols. It has a large OM symbol in the middle and surrounded with mantra at front and a double dorje motif at rear.
Tibetan Buddhists believe that saying the mantra (prayer), Om Mani Padme Hum, out loud or silently to oneself, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion. The OM symbols represents the whole blessed mantra.
The Double Dorje or Vajra Cross:
The Vajra is the quintessential symbol of Vajrayana Buddhism, which derives its name from the vajra itself. The Sanskrit term vajra means 'the hard or mighty one', and its Tibetan equivalent dorje means an indestructible hardness and brilliance like the diamond, which cannot be cut or broken. The vajra essentially symbolizes the impenetrable, immovable, immutable, indivisible, and indestructible state of enlightenment or Buddhahood. The form of the vajra as a scepter or a weapon appears to have its origin in the single or double trident, which arose as a symbol of the thunderbolt or lightning in many ancient civilizations of the Near and Middle East.
