Symbolic Meaning:

This stunning pendant is elegantly crafted in Sterling Silver and features the Ashtamangala integrated with the Om symbol at the centre of the design.  Ashtamangala represents the eight symbols of good fortune and the path to enlightenment in Buddhism symbolised through art.  The 8 symbols can be interpreted as: 1) Wheel or Chakra - symbol of absolute completeness. 2) Conch Shell - the trumpet of victory. 3) Lotus Flower - symbolises purity of body, speech and mind. 4) Parasol - represents physical and spiritual protection. 5) Fish - the two fishes represent spiritual liberation and fertility.  6) Vase - the treasure pot symbolises the fulfilment of health, wealth, wisdom and longevity.  7) Banner - represents the victory of good over evil.  8) Eternal Knot - symbolises an emblem of love, i.e. the connection between wisdom and compassion.    Integrated within the Ashtamangala is the Om symbol. In Hinduism, Om is a sacred sound, aptly considered the greatest of all mantras. Om represents the three worlds (earth, atmosphere and heaven) as well as the three Gods (Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva).  The deep symbolic meaning of Om is the belief that God first created sound and the universe arose from it.  Om therefore is the root of the universe and it holds everything together. It is recited at the beginning and end of Hindu mantras and meditations. Wear this powerful piece proudly as a reminder that you are protected, loved and bountifully blessed in all areas of your life.©
