Since time immemorial, gau boxes have been used by practitioners of the Dharma, to house important texts such as mantras, prayers and images of the Buddha and important Buddhist deities and ritual objects. Keeping these sacred texts and images close to their hearts, allowed them to recite mantras, pray and meditate in times of need. One of the great benefits of wearing a gau box, is that it can empower us to courageously face adversity or find balance in our everyday lives. Simply by opening it up to read or recite the message contained inside, or pray or meditate, can help us to remember what matters most and helps us to feel grounded and in control of our emotions and thoughts.
The Kalachakra is a traditional Indian and Tibetan meditation practice of great complexity. It Originated long ago from the highest class of tantra, Anuttarayoga. It provides a profound method for overcoming karma and attaining enlightenment. In its architectural design, it contains the encyclopedia of ancient Indian science. Which is said to be helpful to everyone, regardless of their beliefs.
The Kalachakra Seed Syllable or Tenfold Powerful One is a complex Buddhist emblem symbolizing the Kalachakra, or wheel of time. The seven intertwined letters (rendered in Lantsa, a Buddhist version of Sanskrit used for mantras and sacred texts) represent the seven words of the Kalachakra mantra - "Ham Ksha Ma La Va Ra Ya." The seven letters, combined with the crescent and full moons and the nada (wisp), make up the ten elements that give the emblem its name.
