These playful handmade paper earrings are actually a tiny book filled with the ancient Tibetan sacred mantra or prayer for realizing perfect wisdom and compassion, Om Mani Padme Hum, or hail to the jewel in the lotus. In Tibet, the mantra is commonly chanted as well as carved onto rocks along pilgrimage paths and printed on prayer flags and prayer wheels to increase its effects. By flipping the pages of this book, you send prayers to the universe, similar to the use of a prayer flag. The book cover shows a traditional rendering of the mantra in a six petal stylized lotus, the Buddhist symbol of spiritual perfection. The paper is made of lokta, a unique and sustainably harvested fiber from the higher Himalaya altitudes. Measures 2 inches high.
