Inscribed with one of the most significant mantras in Buddhism—Om mani padme hum—this handcrafted chime is created by Tibetan refugees residing in northern India. Buddhists believe that saying this mantra, or even viewing it in its written form, invokes the blessings of the Buddha of Compassion. Cast from a combination of metals, the hand-tuned chime produces a clear tone when struck. Features brass stand with cloud motif and wooden base and striker.

    The bolt which is integral to the curved arm and necessary for assembly was badly bent and had stripped teeth. I had to cut off 1/3 of an inch of the bolt so I could get a straight bolt with enough good teeth to screw it into the base. The item was wrapped in tissue paper, no box so it was inconvenient as a gift. The item otherwise is very nice and attractive, and would make a good gift for someone into meditation.

      I was delighted with this Chime of Compassion. The quality is excellent. The brass chime is ornate and well made and attaches to the wood base with a simple twist. My daughter absolutely loved this gift and was charmed as the receiver!

              My Tibetan friend recently lost her father in Tibet and I selected this gift to show my compassion for her loss and assist, in her cultural manner, to help her feel peace around her father's death in a tradition she was raised with and I thought being made by the refugees who fled to India was extra appropriate in this case.
              She absolutely loved it and says it is so lovely.

I had to cut off 1/3 of an inch of the bolt so I could get a straight bolt with enough good teeth to screw it into the base.

                        Anyone who has lived near U.S. coastal areas has seen great blue herons perched on roofs or in treetops. Found from the Galapagos to northern Maine, the bird was once hunted for its long plumage; now, habitat loss is its biggest threat. These wind chimes are reminders of the great bird’s beauty.

                        Since the first half of the 20th century, the mythical, celestial snow lion has been the national protector of Tibet, blazing with fearlessness and representing dominance over the Himalayan mountains. Before Tibet was incorporated into the People's Republic of China, the snow lion was found on the country's coins, stamps, and the national flag, and it is still a symbol of the Tibetan independence movement.

                        Nomadic Himalayan tribes wore their wealth in the form of jewelry—often turquoise, called gyu in Tibetan—that could be easily carried and exchanged. So highly regarded is turquoise in Tibetan culture that the blue of the sky is referred to as ''the turquoise of heaven.'' Using faux versions of turquoise and amber, Tibetan refugees living in India create this substantial and bold jewelry in a Mongolian-influenced but modern style.
