This enchanting accessory comprises a lovely stainless steel medallion pendant strung on a traditional Buddhist-styled black cord. It features a beautiful Lotus Mandala on one side and the mantra of Amitabha Buddha Om Ami Dewa Hrih in Tibetan script, on the other. Mandalas are usually circular geometric diagrams that are believed to communicate some aspect of the universe symbolically, usually with spiritual significance. Wearing or carrying a symbolic image of the Lotus (the symbol of Amitabha) and of his mantra will provide one with continuous protection and blessings.
The Lotus is one of the most common symbols in Eastern spirituality. Its serene and wide petals often form the base of Buddha or Goddess statues. The flower is commonly seen in the hand of a deity, featured in Buddhist and Hindu art, decorating alters, symbolizing energy points, or highlighted in sacred texts. The lotus represents the Higher, Divine Self – a symbol of enlightenment. Each of us has the inherent ability to reach his or her full potential, and therefore, “bloom” in the midst of the muck. The mantra Om Mani Padme Hum can be translated as “The Jewel is in the Lotus.” The Jewel (our enlightened Self) is in the Lotus (in our human manifestation).
Amitabha, (meaning boundless light and infinite life in Sanskrit) is the Buddha in the Land of Ultimate Bliss (Pure Land), in which all beings enjoy unbounded happiness. One of the most popular and well-known Buddha in China (where he is known as Amitofu) and other parts of Asia, Amitabha is often seen with his two attendant Bodhisattvas, Avalokitesvara, representing compassion, and Mahasthamaprapta, representing wisdom. Together they form the Three Saints of the West or the Western Trinity. Revered as “The Buddha of Infinite Light”, he manifests boundless compassion, protecting and welcoming all into his realm of certain enlightenment. As head of the Lotus family, he is often depicted seated in serene meditation on a lotus throne, his radiant form warming and pacifying the hearts of all who gaze at him. His practice purifies all delusions and removes obstacles caused by one’s excessive attachment to material things, the embodiment of discriminating wisdom and antidote to desire. Chanting or meditating with his mantra Om Ami Dewa Hrih will invoke similar blessings.
