These amulets will bring protection for you when you put in the wallet, bag or pocket of a garment. 1) Lotus flower (padma) – as the flower rises from muddy roots, so Nirvana arises from this shabby world; therefore it symbolizes purity. 2) Golden Fish (gser-na) – as water allows fish to swim freely, so Buddhist belief emancipates the soul. They symbolize spiritual liberation 3) Dharma Wheel (chakra) – represents the unity of all things and symbolizes Sakyamuni himself 4) Endless Knot (apal-be) – an auspicious geometric diagram, it symbolizes devotion. 5) Umbrella (gdugs) – a token of loyalty and symbolizes the protection of the Dharma (faith). 6) Vase (bum-pa) – used as the storage urn of a sacred receptacle and thus symbolizes hidden treasures 7) Conch Shell (dun) – used in Buddhist worship as a trumpet or offertory vessel and symbolizes the spoken word of Buddha. 8) Banner of Victory (dpal-be) – a unique Buddhist object, the cylindrical layered banner symbolizes victory over ignorance and death.
