Description

A Chorten is a receptacle for offerings, and the most chortens do have religious relic or the ashes of Lamas inside them. Each of the elements of chorten has a symbolic meaning. The square or rectangular base symbolizes the solid earth. On the base is a hemispherical dome, symbolizes water. On the top of the dome is a rectangular tower, the four sides of which are painted with a pair of eyes, the all-seeing eyes of Buddha. What appears to be once is actually the Sanskrit character for the number one, symbolizes the absoluteness of Buddha. Above the rectangular tower is a conical or pyramidal spire (symbolizing fire) with 13 steps is an ornament shaped like a crescent moon, symbolizing air, and a vertical spike, which symbolizes either or the sacred light of Buddha. is a receptacle for offerings, and the most chortens do have religious relic or the ashes of Lamas inside them.

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.
