In the center is a symbol of the stylized lotus flower, one of the Eight Auspicious symbols, commonly associated with the process of becoming a buddha. Strung on a dark cotton cord and includes an informative tag.

The box features the historical Sakyamuni Buddha, founder of Buddhism and the earliest expounder of the Dharma or Buddhist teachings, though he is thought to be just one of many Buddhas or enlightened beings. The paper used to make the attractive box comes from the bark of a sustainably harvested Himalayan shrub called lokta. Inside are instructions for a simple meditation using the bowl.

Om Mani Padme Hum, translated as hail to the jewel in the lotus, is the ancient Tibetan mantra or prayer for realizing perfect wisdom and compassion. To simply hear or see the mantra, even without knowing its ultimate meaning, will bring positive karmic results.

The hand-cast tingsha is painted with the lotus design by a skilled Nepali artisan. Hang a cymbal from each hand and gently strike the sides together to release the mantra's cosmic vibration. Comes with its own gift box. Made in Nepal.
