Tibetan Lucky Bracelets #WorldCraftWeek

I have always loved arts and crafts and recently got into making bracelets out of the Tibetan blessing strings. These strings are generally worn around the neck and bracelets such as these are worn on your left wrist until it fades and drops off. I find the process of making these bracelets so therapeutic and rewarding at the same time. Here are some of my early attempts.

Tibetan bracelets are made out of blessing strings generally and it is believed to dispel all negative obscuration and help improve the health and well being of the person wearing this.

Here are some more I have made in the last few days. I love trying out different knots pattern and see how they look – some are great and some not so great. I have been giving them away to friends and family and sold to raise money for charity.

When these are made the person making would recite sacred Buddhist mantras as well as getting them blessed from Buddhist monks and temples. I have been brought up to practice sacred Buddhist mantras which I recited during the making of these bracelets. I would like to think the power of these specials mantras helps protect the person wearing my bracelets.

Tashi Delek to you all and may the power of every moment of your goodness, may all dangers be averted and all disease be gone.
