Handcrafted conch shell embedded with Tibetan stone and 'Om mani Padme hum' mantra engraved.
According to the Tibetan tradition, all six syllables in the mantra 'Om mani padme hum' are said to contain the sum of Buddha’s teachings. When translated literally, Om Mani Padme Hum means, “The jewel is in the lotus”, or “Hail to the jewel in the lotus,”.
This nepalese handcrafted conch looks remarkable and will be a perfect gift for someone who loves antique items.
In Hindu mythology, the shankha is a sacred emblem of the Hindu preserver god Vishnu. It is still used as a trumpet in Hindu ritual, and in the past was used as a war trumpet. The shankha is praised in Hindu scriptures as a giver of fame, longevity and prosperity, the cleanser of sin and the abode of goddess Lakshmi, who is the goddess of wealth and consort of Lord Vishnu.
