This fine, classic Silver Prayer Box Pendant is made up of Sterling silver Turquoise and Coral. It is handmade by Newar Artist in Patan, Nepal.

 

The followers of Tibetan Buddhism make use of a type of prayer box known as a Ghau (sometimes spelled “Gau” or “Gao” ). The Ghau is used within this tradition as an amulet , ritualistic object believed to provide protection from evil. A Ghau box is often embedded with semi-precious or precious stones or coral. Turquoise and red coral are especially favored in the design of Tibetan prayer boxes. Other gems are also used by the Tibetan silversmith.

 

The Ghau is usually worn around the neck and hung close to the heart. Within it is placed a scroll up on which is written or printed a prayer or sacred symbol. These scroll are typically prepared and blessed by a Buddhist priest. In this use, the Ghau is not unlike a transportable shrine. In lieu of prayer, the Ghau might also be used as a container for holding herbs, stones or other objects believed to have protection powers.

 

The Tibetan Buddhist might also place an image of Buddha or other deity inside the prayer box. A Ghau might even be designed with an opening that allows the person to view the image throughout the day. Alternatively, a cast form of the deity may ornate the surface of the Ghau.
