Nepalese Buddhist Protection Amulet

70.00 AUD

Oh Nepal, you are a tonic for the soul. I have wandered your soils twice now, and it’s you I bring to mind when I need a little more peace in my day.
Luckily, since I gathered these precious ghaus in the narrow laneways of Kathmandu a few months back, I don’t have to try so hard to conjure you these days.
This little prayer box, a Buddhist amulet worn as jewellery, protects the wearer from negative energies. Inside it lies a scroll inscribed with a prayer, prepared and blessed by a Buddhist priest, and a tiny statue of the Buddha. Like a transportable shrine, it hangs close to your heart for when you need that extra support, or a little extra peace in your day.
