8 auspicious symbol Prayer Wheel
A Prayer Wheel ornamented with depictions of the Eight Auspicious Symbols is a tool used in Buddhism to represent spiritual progression and enlightenment. These symbols are thought to possess profound importance and embody a range of enlightenment-related traits.
The Eight Auspicious Symbols includes:
- Conch Shell (Sankha): Embodies the musical sound of the Dharma, symbolizing the Buddha's teachings and the enlightenment of living creatures.
- Lotus Flower (Padma):Portraying purity, ascendance, and the possibility of insight, the lotus flourishes in murky waters while retaining its innocence, evoking the capacity to surmount material matters.
- Vase (Kalasha):This depiction symbolizes a wealth of spiritual gifts, signifying longevity, wealth, and a variety of divine merits.
- Wheel (Dharmachakra): Signifies the turning of the wheel of Dharma, representing the Buddha's teachings and the path to enlightenment.
- Parasol (Chattra): Conveys protection and safekeeping. Symbolizes a spiritual defense against adversity, lack of understanding, and potential dangers.
- Knot of Eternity (Srivatsa): Represents the endless and interconnected nature of reality and the interdependence of all things. It signifies the boundless wisdom and compassion of the Buddha.
- Victory Banner (Dhvaja): Symbolizes victory over ignorance and the triumph of wisdom. It represents the attainment of spiritual accomplishments and the overcoming of obstacles on the path to enlightenment.
- Golden Fish (Matsya):Signifying liberty and intrepidity, fish traverse water with ease, denoting emancipation from samsara and the blessings of spiritual autonomy.
A prayer wheel containing the Eight Auspicious Symbols may be arranged in a circular shape around a cylinder. By spinning in a clockwise direction, it is believed that positive energy and blessings will be spread with each rotation.

Service and delivery of this first Mandala I bought from Lucky Thanka was really fast and the updates were brilliant.
This Mandala is simply beautiful and I am so pleased with it.
I am very happy with the quality of the seeds and i use it to count my mantra as it has 21 bodhi, which is so difficult to fine else where. Besides that Prateek’s impeccable service and advice is an incentive for me to purchase items from him. I will gladly recommend this website to you.
Great pleasure dealing with Lucky Thangka. Beautiful and well executed pieces. Very responsive and helpful staff. Highly recommended
Great quality heart chakra attuned bowl, fast postage and prompt replies from seller.
