This listing is for a yak bone pendant necklace with the buddha of compassion mantra, OM MANI PADME HUM and the buddha eye symbol in the center. 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. The buddha eyes are a symbol of wisdom in Tibetan buddhism. Please contact me with any further questions.
