This mantra, engraved on this designer bracelet, is known as the Heart Sutra. It's meaning does not translate well into English although "Gone, gone; Gone beyond, well-gone beyond; Complete Awakening" is generally accepted. In essence chanting this mantra is believed to help us visualize emptiness, protecting us from depending on objects so that we can see the true way or path to enlightenment, the essence of the Buddha's teaching. It is a powerful mantra familiar to many westerners as it is frequently chanted in yoga classes. Beautiful as a gold or silver bracelet.
Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in the jewelry bag in which it came will help prevent tarnishing.
