*Now in a handmade Nepali Lokta OM box
Each bracelet has been individually blessed by monks from the Woechen Thuk-Je Choeling Monastery.
It has been charged with positivity and purified by lifelong monks through the recitation of the ancient protection mantra “Om Ranchi Ramni Tawa Taya Hum.”
The bracelet is made entirely of copper, and is inscribed by hand with the ancient mantra "Om Mani Pad Me Hum," the most revered mantra in Tibetan Buddhism.
This mantra literally translated as, praise to the jewel in the lotus flower.
However, it is best understood as, compassion is the path to enlightenment.
When we recite this mantra, we first think to our heart, then to our mouth and finally to our head. We remember to always have the right heart, the right words, and right thoughts.
It's a simple yet powerful concept, and one too often forgotten.
This bracelet offers us a reminder to remain compassion in everything we do. It helps us navigate this life, so that we see this world and all sentient beings in it as being made of love and deserving of compassion.
Copper is known for its anti-bacteria and anti-fungal properties.
More, copper is a highly conductive metal, making it an excellent medium by which to store positive energy!
Since ancient Egyptian times, copper has been worn to treat arthritis, and as a mineral supplement.
This monastery is located 365 steps above Kathmandu, Nepal. It is situated next to Swayambhu Temple, one of the holiest Buddhist temples in the world. In the words of its modern founder, His Eminence Ven. Drubthob Rinpoche, this temple is dedicated to the “restoration of a harmonious human society, and for the well being of every sentient being in this world.”
