This wondrous talisman is an entirely hand-made masterpiece made with love and devotion. This magical pendant has two sides that synergistically work to evoke intentional loving creations and weave elemental energies together to bring your dreams into form so that your creations can be shared with the world!
The front side of this medallion depicts the blossoming of a lotus flower stemming from The Seal on Buddha’s Heart, which represents universal harmony, auspiciousness and dharma. An Om is delicately carved on each of the four inner petals, calling in the four directions. The outer layer of eight petals gracefully completes the lotus with eight Oms and Balinese Sanskrit prayers for all the archetypes of creation. These eight petals with eight prayers are an embodiment of The Noble Eightfold Path, a Buddhist teaching based on freeing ourselves from attachments as a means to end suffering, through: right understanding, right thought, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, and right concentration. On the very outer edge of the pendant’s face are eight colorful gems that surround the lotus, bringing further light to each of these Buddhist values and grounding in Spirit to the realm of the manifest.
The back side of this staggering pendant features a unique mandala of four pentagrams in tribute to the four elements, offering deep reverence to this sacred Earth. The four pentagrams all connect to form a larger eight-pointed star, balancing the wisdom of The Eightfold Path into the dualities of the world.
