This lovely work of art comprises a padded pouch-like amulet attached to red silk cording, embellished with creative knots, decorative bells, and finished prettily with a multi-colored tassel. This exquisite item features the beautiful Tibetan OM MANI PADME HUM mantra on one side and the Double Dorje with auspicious Chinese characters on the other.
OM MANI PADME HUM is probably the most famous mantra in Buddhism. It is the six syllabled mantras of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Avalokiteshvara (Tibetan Chenrezig, Chinese Guanyin). It has the power to bless the heart and mind of any who come into contact with it. Its special benefit is to uncover and foster the compassion innate in all beings. The Dalai Lama is said to be an incarnation of Chenrezig or Avalokiteshvara, so the mantra is especially revered by his devotees and it is commonly carved onto rocks and written on paper which is then inserted into prayer wheels to increase its effects.
The mantra OM MANI PADME HUM is easy to recite yet powerful because it contains the essence of the entire teachings of Buddha. Through contact with and, especially, a meditation on this mantra of compassion, positive qualities are developed and so, happiness naturally increases in one’s life. Here are some of the benefits traditionally ascribed to the six syllables of “OM MANI PADME HUM”:
OM – Increases Generosity
MA – Increases Ethics
NI – Increases Patience
PAD -Increases Diligence
ME – Increases Concentration
HUM – Increases Wisdom

Dorje is a Tibetan word meaning “noble stone.” It embodies the brilliance of diamond-like illumination and symbolizes the indestructible source of power from which all else is born. Like a diamond, the Dorje is a reminder of that which is enduring, invincible, and irresistible. The Double Dorje has the additional power to protect all that is sacred and mundane. Wearing the protective Double Dorje helps strengthen our core and empowers our inner strength.
This fortunate tassel can be not only placed at houses or offices but can also be carried and kept as a good luck amulet. As such, it can work as a Feng Shui lucky charm and protect you not only while you are in your house or at work but also the rest of the time and wherever you go.
