pendant, Buddhist protection amulet. Silver 925, copper. Wheel of life and lion. Rotating pendant
very important symbol of Buddhism, the lion identifies with royalty (the Buddha was a Prince before reaching enlightenment). The lion also symbolizes the power of teaching compared to the roar of a lion.
In the far East, the lion has profound affinities with the Dragon. It plays a fundamental role in protecting against the forces of evil.
Hindu iconography makes the lion a solar animal and a representation of the verb. It translates the terrible aspect of Maya, the power of manifestation.
The symbol of the wheel.
In terms of symbols, the Buddha, sitting under the Bodhi tree, lives two things. First of all, he saw a Ferris wheel. This wheel embraces the totality of the conditioned existence, it is of the same extent as the cosmos, it contains all the living beings. She turns constantly: she turns day and night, she turns life after life, she turns after era. We cannot see when it began to turn, and we cannot for the moment see when it will cease to turn: only a Buddha sees this.
This Ferris wheel rotates around a hub. This hub is made of three creatures: a red rooster, avidly picorating the ground; a Green Snake, red eyes shining with anger; and a black pig, wallowed in the mud, full of ignorance. These three creatures themselves form a circle, and each of them bites the tail of the one that precedes it.
The Bagua or Ba Gua 八卦 (sometimes also PA Kua or Pakua) is a graph in which the 8 trigrams are organized in an octagonal figure. With Tai Ji, the symbol of yin and Yang embraced, it is probably one of the most famous Feng Shui terms in the West and certainly the one whose most amazing ideas are made! It represents a static energy State (it is the anterior sky) or dynamic (posterior sky).
