The word “Buddha” means AWAKE !
That is: eyes open, heart open...and chanting the sound of the universe. Buddha’s Eyes are wide open to everything and everyone. His eyes are beautiful like a lotus petal because he was always kind. His eyelashes are long like those of a royal bull - because the Buddha never expressed anger through his eyes. Accompanying Buddha’s Eyes and often on the other side of Mani Stones from which our design is patterned is the Sanskit word for Om. It is said that one who recites the sacred mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum will be saved from evil and danger.
