Product Description

The Treasure Vase

The golden treasure vase, or ‘vase of inexhaustible treasures’, is modeled upon the traditional Indian clay water pot. The typical Tibetan treasure vase is represented as a highly ornate golden vase, with lotus-petal motifs radiating around in various sections. A single wish granting gem, or group of three gems, seals its upper rim as a symbol of the Three Jewels of the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha.

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.
