The Wooden Buddhist Swastika Key Chain is a beautiful talisman featuring a wooden Swastika imprinted with auspicious and protective mantras in gold. It is enhanced with decorative beads and creative knots.
The Swastika (Sanskrit svastika, “all is well”), a simple geometric symbol of a cross with four arms of equal length, has a long history in nearly every culture of the world. Also known as Wan Zi (Chinese), Man Ji (Japanese), or Yung Drung (Tibetan), it has been used in many places as a symbol of health and good luck, as well as to represent the idea of the eternal return or continuous flow. In Buddhism, the swastika signifies auspiciousness and good fortune as well as Buddha’s footprints and heart. The Buddhist swastika is thus considered a symbol of plurality, eternity, abundance, prosperity, and long life. It is used as an auspicious mark on Buddhist temples and as decorative borders around paintings, altar cloths, and banners. Many of these symbols are clockwise or right turning whilst the older ones are left turning symbol. But whether it is right turning or left turn, the meaning and origin is always the same – auspicious well-being.
The Wooden Buddhist Swastika Key Chain, besides being an elegant accessory, is a handy Feng Shui amulet to invoke the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Buddha. Hang it in your home or car, or pop it in your bag to enjoy peace of mind and prepare to welcome greater prosperity, improved health, and better luck into your life!
