This fully adjustable solid .925 sterling silver bracelet with gold vermeil is made in Nepal and features the mantra of compassion, 'Om Mani Padme Hum' in Tibetan script. The mantra invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion. This bracelet also includes beautiful roping details, two dorje symbols on either side of the mantra, two Garuda accents at the adjustable opening, and a carved dragon design inside the cuff.
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. Dragons have special meaning and symbolism in many cultures. They are fierce protectors and wise leaders, guardians and sages.
Bracelet measures approximately 6 1/4 inches around in total and is 5/8 inch thick, but can be adjusted to fit most wrist sizes. Made in Nepal.
