Rich in its spiritual meaning, Buddhist pendant starts with a outline design of one of the auspicious symbol lotus. Each petal of the lotus holds part of the sacred Buddhist Om Mani mantra. At the center of the pendant is the symbol of Buddha eyes. Om Mani Padme Hum is the most frequently used Mantra in Buddhism, the syllable "Om" represents body, spirit and the speech of Buddha; "Mani" is for the path of teaching; "Padme" for the wisdom of the path, and "hum" indicates to the union of wisdom and the path to it. One of the eight symbols of good fortune, the Lotus flower represents purity of mind. Tibetan Buddhist mystics imagined the earth floating like a lotus flower on the oceans of the universe.
