Tibetan Buddhism has a group of eight symbols that are considered to be the oldest and most well known. These symbols are: the Golden Fish, the Parasol, the Urn, the Lotus Flower, the Conch Shell, the Infinite Knot, the Wheel and the Flag. The pendant depicts these eight symbols in a circular design framing the sacred Om symbol. Om is believed to be the sound of life, present as a vibration in all living beings and in nature. It is also believed that Om was the sound that was produced when this universe was created. Om as a sound with mystical properties is not specific to any country, civilization or religion. It is a universal sound that has been used in many faiths, adapted to suit the spiritual practices of a particular group. This Buddhist pendant measures about 2 inches in diameter and is made of brass.
