These bracelets are made of a circle of beads. They have been used by many different cultures throughout time. They have been called worry beads, prayer beads, and wishing beads. One common thing to all ancient peoples that used beads strung in this manner; they all believed that the beads might bring good fortune and good luck to the wearer.
Some call them Buddhist Prayer beads. When you wear the beads you may say this simple Buddhist prayer. Fu, Lu, Sou, Hsi: This translates as Fu, (pronounced foo, meaning fortune) Lu, (pronounced loo, meaning wealth), Sou (pronounced sue, meaning long life), and Hsi, (pronounced she, meaning happiness). You may take the bracelet off your wrist and hold it in your hands, feel the stones in your hands. Some use them this way for meditation. Some believe rubbing the beads in this manner can take away your worries, relieve anxiety, and make your wishes come true.
The presence of the sterling silver Buddha only strengthens the spiritual attributes of such a bracelet. Buddha heads serve as a symbol of the enlightened one's wisdom. The Ushnisha, the crown of the hair, represents the knowledge and wisdom that Buddha acquired after enlightenment. The Urna, the circle between the eyes, represents seeing the supernatural vision that Buddha has, and the long ears symbolize his wealth.
Each bead is skillfully polished individually, then drilled to create this colorful bracelet. Connected with jewellery elastic, this bracelet stretches to fit. Perfect for stacking with other bracelets or just to wear on its own. A must-have staple for any jewellery box.
