This listing is for a hand crafted crushed turquoise and brass pendant with the buddhist prayer for compassion, Om Mani Padme Hum. This pendant measures approximately 1 inch and was handmade in Kathmandu Nepal. The script is the mantra of Avalokteshwara, the Buddha of compassion, and it translates to "hail to the jewel in the lotus". Mani means jewel and pema means lotus. OM includes three syllables, AH, O and MA. OM can also be used as a blessing, OM AH HUM. Many Tibetan people use the powerful mantra OM AH HUM to bless food, animals, the earth, etc.
Due to the handmade nature of this item, each pendant may differ slightly. Please contact me with any further questions.
The design on this pendant is really nice, and it's overall size is nice as well. This item shipped quickly and is exactly as described. I am highly satisfied and look forward to wearing this pendant.
