Om Mani Padme Hum, the mantra of Avalokitesvara, is the ancient Tibetan mantra or prayer for realizing perfect wisdom and compassion. Travelers to Tibet find it everywhere — printed on prayer flags, inside and outside prayer wheels, carved onto prayer stones and even on mountain sides.
Tiny golden hand-cut letters form the sacred Sanskrit mantra Om Mani Padme Hum.
Naga (Dragon) Door or Wind Chime: In the Asian tradition, the cosmic dragon is considered a symbol of wisdom, prosperity and long life. In Buddhist mythology, dragons are seen as protecting vast stores of jewels and of sacred scriptures. Enlightened being were in fact known as “Nagas.”
This chime includes an intricate disc containing the writhing form of a powerful dragon, and a bell embossed with a dragon motif. The bell’s ringer is in the form of the clouds that the naga lives amongst.
Made in the Tibetan colony of Lingtsang in northern India, this handsome Tibetan bell is individually sand-cast in solid brass and carefully hand-tuned to ensure exceptional clarity of sound and tone.
This bell can be used either as a door chime, or as a wind chime.
