Sterling Silver Metta Prayer NecklaceMetta: A Pali word meaning loving kindness, an unconditional love and empathy that accepts all living things.
May all beings be free.
May all beings be peaceful
May all beings be happy
May all beings awaken to the light of their True nature
May all beings be free
is a meditation which encourages us to give metta
to ourselves, so we may be more able to bestow it upon others.
The prayer engraved onto this pendant is extracted from this meditation and is adorned with a perfect lotus or Padma
, one of the eight auspicious symbols of Buddhism. The lotus symbol represents the progress of the soul from materialism to enlightenment as a reflection of the growth cycle of the lotus plant itself.
The shape of this pendant is a modern organic interpretation of the ancient form known as the Chinese pi
, a circle within a circle. The ancient pi was commonly carved in jade which was considered to have a vital, life-giving force: a perfect shape therefore to inform an inspirational piece of jewelry which can be worn or kept as a touchstone.
Comes with an 18" sterling silver chain
