Padmapani Avalokiteshavara Gau-Box Pendant, Manjushri On The Cover, Made With Coral And Turquoise And Lapis Lazuli (Made In Nepal)
The gau box of Tibetan Buddhism is a one-of-a-kind dharmic implement. It is, simply put, a portable shrine inside which the devotee houses the icon of one's choice. The gau box that you see on this page houses none other than the resplendent Avalokiteshvara. It could be worn around the neck or the waist or the arm, with the subject of one's devotion keeping watch everywhere one goes. This unique gau box has been handpicked for the beauty and complexity of the handiwork - the instantly recognisable, sword-wielding Manjushri is superimposed on the filigree of the gau box cover.
More filigree is to be found inside the gau box, against which sits Avalokiteshvara. While the make of the Manjushri figurine is dominated by corals, a bunch of turquoises and lapis lazuli graces Avalokiteshvara. He is seated in poorna-padmasana, steeped in meditation within the precinct of His gau box. From the gorgeous filigree to the spiritual message it contains, this pendant is a fine example of Nepalese aesthetics and workmanship. Should you be spiritually inclined, it will add to your presence the calm, gathered aura of Avalokiteshvara.
