About Lotus Seeds:
Lotus Seed beads are dried seeds from plants of the genus Nelumbo. Lotus Seeds are important in many parts of Asia and the Indian subcontinent in everything from religion to medicine to food.
Lotus Flower: Great significance in Tibetan Buddhism. Many deities are depicted seated upon lotus flowers, or in some cases such as Padmasambhava (The Lotus Born), having arisen from Lotus Flowers. The lotus has a special quality of being pristine and beautiful, and having prominently arisen from the murkiness of a swamp.This signifies our Buddha Nature: from the darkness of our confusion, the brightness of our awakened heart can be born.
Tiger’s Eye: The chosen material for His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s own mala. It is folklored as a power stone. Tiger’s Eye has a wonderful reputation for attracting wealth, money, and luck. However, it has powerful spiritual uses as well. The liquid movement of light across the stone makes it an excellent tool for vision or divination work.
