The Opulent Eight! Fantastic Eight! The eight auspicious symbols commonly known as Ashtamangala in Buddhist culture is very often seen in old artworks and paintings. These eight symbols are very powerful and believed to bring in lots of prosperity and good luck.
The Dhungkar or the White conch symbolizes the awakening of the sentient being from the sleeping state of ignorance and I have used this conch symbol in many of my healing artworks.
The Bhumpa is one of my favorite symbols used in many of my pot and vase paintings, this symbolizes a vase of inexhaustible treasures. Hanging this healing painting will welcome good prosperity and wealth in one’s life and as the name symbolizes the vase of inexhaustible treasures.
Another symbol is Dug, Parasol which signifies the shade under which one is protected from the scorching heat and problems of this life and world. It is used as a powerful symbol for protection.
The Palbheu or the mystic knot is a famous symbol used by many cultures to symbolize harmony and unending life resources. The good fortune of complimenting every aspect of your life the endless knot is merged and intertwined with each other and is very difficult to paint.
Another symbols from the eight auspicious symbols is Gyaltsen, the Victorious Banner which is seen in many Buddhist paintings and flags. the symbol assures Victory and is used to symbolize victory of bad over evil.
Many evil forces block and obstruct the success and this symbol is used to overcome this negative energy and invite positive luck.
Pema or the beautiful lotus which is seen in many Buddhist paintings and is also seen in many of my healing paintings is a universal symbol for peace and luck. It is the ultimate symbol for enlightenment and achieving the ultimate in spirituality. This is the symbol for non attachment, how this feeling is great when you are not attached to anything and feel freedom to invite grace to offer you, you are a mere spectator , an actor who just has to act and this feeling is of great achievement, the feeling of non attachment, of not being responsible for everything. This is just what we advice in reiki, to let go of all attachments and free yourself of the guilt of not being responsible for everything and anything! There is a super power who is controlling everything and you are not the center of everything. Trust me this feeling is awesome. The image of lotus in most Buddhist artworks is not painted as our lotus flower because this flower does not grow in Tibet and the people have modified the image according to make it decorative.
Another auspicious symbol here which is the Wheel of Dharma. The Choekyi Khoreo or the Wheel of Dharma. Using these symbols in single , in pairs and also all the eight auspicious symbols together I have made healing paintings that when hung on any wall will continue giving healing for your whole life. Healing is not limited to any one person or any one situation and can heal just anyone and everyone.
The Sernya or the two Golden Fishes is also a symbol that is frequently used by healing and feng shui artists. In feng shui fishes swimming gracefully are a sure sign to welcome prosperity and good luck. painting depicting fishes swimming is considered to be very lucky and hanging such paintings in the north will invite career luck and money luck into your life. It indicates the power to swim in this ocean of life without any hindrance or blockages.
