The Heart Sutra Mantra Mobius Bracelet
The Heart Sutra Mantra is possibly the most well known Buddhist scripture. The Heart of the Perfection of Transcendent Wisdom. Sterling silver bangle bracelet is finely engraved with “gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha” translated “Gone, gone; Gone beyond; Well-gone beyond; Complete Awakening". A mantra may be thought of as a tool to protect the mind. Mantras originate from the most ancient scriptures of the Hindu Vedas. They are recited by Buddhist and Hindus to engage and help realize the qualities of deities upon which they may meditate.
The Mobius bracelet has been designed so that these beautiful words flow all around, inside and out, without end. The unique properties of this design make the prayer seem infinite.
The elliptical shape sits comfortably about the hand, while the form itself displays unusual geometric properties. The shape is known as a Möbius strip, after the German mathematician August Ferdinand Möbius [1790-1868]. It represents the seeming paradox of a plane without end, or one of infinite length. As such it became accepted as a symbol for infinity, an appropriate and symbolic form for these memorable inscriptions.
This exquisite bracelet made in the USA measures 8 1/4 inches in circumference, ellipse: 2 13/16 x 2 ½ inches and width: 3/16 - 5/16 inches.
