The vajra is a powerful ritual object said to grant the wielder or holder with spiritual strength and string mental fortitude. This Nepalese Jewelry Gau Box can be used to aid you in your spiritual journey. Use it to keep your most sacred mantra, text or image close to your heart, and in time of need or despair take it out to read, pray or meditate.
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 Vajra is a kind of weapon used by the Indian Vedic rain and thunder-deity Indra. In Indian mythology, It symbolizes the properties of a diamond, which means "Indestructibility", and a thunderbolt which means "irresistible force". And it is considered as one of the most powerful weapons in the universe. In Buddhism, Jainism and Hinduism, the Vajra is used as a ritual object to symbolize firmness of spirit and spiritual power.
