Metal Bracelet with Mantra
About the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum: literally « Om jewel in the lotus Hum », it's the mantra of Chenrezig, the Buddha of compassion whose benevolent expression protects us.
In Tibet, metal bracelets are considered as healing jewels. They are meant to have specific properties such as the activation of blood pressure and the absorption of minerals; their electromagnetic effect relieves pain. The combination of three metals is said to enhance their power. The metals commonly used are copper, brass and nickel silver or aluminium.
