Product Description

The Parasol

The parasol or umbrella is a traditional Indian symbol of royalty and protection. Its showdown protects from the blazing heat of the tropical sun, and the coolness of its shade symbolizes protection from the painful heat of suffering, desire, obstacles, illnesses, and harmful forces.

The eight auspicious symbols are the most well know group of Buddhist symbols, and are traditionally listed in the order of: (1) a white parasol; (2) a pair of golden fishes; (3) a treasure vase; (4) a lotus; (5) a right-spiraling white conch shell; (6) an endless knot; (7) a victorious banner; (8) a golden wheel.

In the Buddhist tradition these eight symbols of good fortune represent the offerings present by the great Vedic gods to Shakyamuni Buddha upon his attainment of enlightenment.

This beautiful card print comes from an image painted by the artist Kumar Lama.

Card measures 5" x 7", and is a textured folding greeting card with a blank interior, that comes in a plastic sleeve.
