The Buddha is a symbolic as well as spiritual representation of the enlightened one's wisdom and knowledge.
Buddhists find that gazing upon the image of the Buddha gives them a clear role model in their own paths toward enlightenment.
Aspirants gain inspiration as they contemplate the qualities embodied by the Buddha during his lifetime.
Om Mani Padme Hum is the most frequently used mantra in Buddhism.
The mantra brings love, protection and compassion.
"The six syllables, Om Mani Padme Hum, mean that in dependence on the practice which is an indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech and mind into the pure body, speech, and mind of a Buddha."
- Dalai Lama
OM purifies EGO
MA purifies JEALOUSY

PAD purifies IGNORANCE
ME purifies GREED
HUM purifies HATRED
Tibetan Buddhists believe that saying the mantra (prayer), Om Mani Padme Hum, out loud or silently to oneself, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion.
Spinning the written form of the mantra around in a Mani wheel (or prayer wheel) is also believed to give the same benefit as saying the mantra, and Mani wheels, small hand wheels and large wheels with millions of copies of the mantra inside, are found everywhere in the lands influenced by Tibetan Buddhism.
Black Agate, like all black stones, is a grounding and protective crystal.
It gives a soothing peace that helps those during a period of grief.
Black Agate gives inner strength to move on and is also very helpful in keeping the peace in stressful households.
This calming stone will keep one steady when faced with practical decision-making or when doling out ‘tough love’.
This is a stone for grounding and centering the energies of the Root or Base Chakra. Use for self control, grounding, resilience, quiet power, invisibility, peace and anxiety.
Black Agate is considered a receiving stone and is used for calming, soothing, inward meditation and reflection.
When used for Chakra healing and balancing, Black Agate represents the element Earth, and is therefore related to our survival instincts, and to our sense of grounding and connection to our bodies and the physical plane.
Ideally, when using black stones at the Root Chakra, they bring us health, prosperity, security and dynamic presence.
