It is a very old symbol, traces of which can be found from the Neolithic era, several thousand years ago, even before the invention of writing. We find some representations on pottery from Mesopotamia, from which the symbol was probably exported to Greece, then to India and China. It is among the Hindu peoples that we find the first written traces (although the symbol was widely used as a decorative element before), in the epics of Rãmãyana and Mahãbhãrata, composed from the 3rd century BC. From Oceania to Europe.
In Hinduism, it has many sacred meanings and it represents the god Ganesh. It is still a ubiquitous symbol among Buddhists. It is the first symbol of Jainism, considered by its followers as the most favourable of all symbols.
In Tibetan, the swastika is called (g.yung-drung), which means ‘eternal’.
- Dzi - The lotus,
The lotus is one of the 8 auspicious signs of Tibetan Buddhism.
The lotus represents the possibility for every human being to reach the state of Buddha regardless of his/her living conditions, just like the Lotus flower growing in a muddy pond.
The fact that the lotus is at the same time flower and fruit symbolises the simultaneousness of cause and effect within existence.
Considered to be sacred since ancient times in India and China, as well as in many other cultures. The symbolism associated with its flower is very rich: its beauty evokes fertility, prosperity, longevity, or the eternity of life because the lotus seeds last a very long time.
Tiger teeth Dzi:
It destroys fears, boosts self-confidence, develops courage and internal power. It removes barriers and it helps achieve luck and success. It helps businesspeople win over competitors, opens up new opportunities and removes obstacles on the way to success. If you present this bead to a child, it will protect them when you can’t do so yourself.
- 2-eyed Dzi:
Allowing harmony between husband and wife to build a happy family, to ensure success and good relations with others. The two-eyed bead represents the harmonious concept of Yin and Yang, the vital balance. So this bead strengthens stability and balance.
- Dzi - Auspicious animals,
Western astrology is based on the months of the year, Chinese astrology relies on a 12-year lunar cycle. According to legend, the 12 animals were chosen by Buddha. When he felt his death approaching, he invited all the animals to visit him, but only 12 animals came:
The rat, the ox, the tiger, the rabbit, the dragon, the snake, the horse, the sheep, the monkey, the rooster, the dog and the pig.
To thank and honour them, Buddha used each of the 12 animals to represent the 12 phases of the Chinese Zodiac.
