This listing is for a turquoise and coral sanskrit om pendant with waxed cord. The pendant measures approximately 0.75 inches. In Tibetan Buddhism, "Om" is the supreme and most sacred syllable, consisting in Sanskrit of three sounds (A, U, M) representing body, speech, mind and other various fundamental triads. Om is believed to be the spoken essence of the universe; it is often understood as symbolizing the true "empty" character of reality, as that truth has been communicated by various historical Buddhas. These pendants are handmade in Kathmandu, Nepal.
