Traditionally, this amulet is worn in order to attract benedictions, peace, luck and avoid the desastres.
The 8 auspid signs of Buddhism or Astamangala were originally a set of Indian offerings presented to a king at his inauguration. Jainism first took up these symbols probably auspicious before Buddhism.
In the Buddhist tradition, these 8 auspicious signs represent the offerings presented by the great Vedic gods – an ancient civilization of India at the origin of Hinduism – to the Buddha Siddhartha after his awakening. Brahma was the first of these gods to appear even before the birth of the Buddha by presenting him with a wheel with a thousand rays of gold, as a symbolic request to the Buddha to convey his teachings by "turning the wheel of the Dharma". Indra, Lord of heaven and God of war and storm – and incidentally King of the gods – appeared following, offering the white conk that the Buddha "proclaim the truth of the Dharma."
In the Buddhist tradition, the eight auspicious signs form the Buddha's body.
the parasol represents his head, the two fish his eyes, the vase his neck, the lotus his tongue, the golden wheel his feet, the banner of victory his body, the conque his word the endless knot his mind.
