Buddha Hand holding Monkey God --------------If you like to see more pictures of this piece or would like some more information please feel free to contact me and I will try and get back to you swiftly --------------The pendant comes with a durable 1.5mm black cotton necklace. Other options are available please message me if you like to choose one -------------- The hand contains the image of the Monkey God, who was born of an egg made of stone that was bathed in sunlight for 500 Years on a Magic Mountain (Hua Guo San Mountain), and learned some very powerful Wicha, which, when he mastered them he called himself the most handsome monkey King and went on the rampage showing off the powers he had Mastered. He stole the Immortality drink and tried to become the Lord of all heaven. But he was to be taught a lesson by Buddha, in a Wager. Buddha betting him that he could not jump out of Buddha's hand. Should Monkey win, he demanded the Jade Emperor's job; should he lose, then he would be banished to Earth for centuries to learn some humility. The rear face of the hand has the 5 Syllable Kata 'Na Mo Put Taa Ya', and a Dhamma Wheel. You may notice the presence of more than the usual eight spokes of the Dhamma wheel, which is in fact, not strange, for it is a fallacy that all Dhamma Wheels have eight spokes representing the Eight Fold Path We love this amulet because of its purely Buddhist influence and potent strength to keep away all 'abamongkol' and 'amanut' (inauspicious events and monstrous beings). The Hand of Pra Urai is protagonist in the legend of Heng Jia, the Monkey God who tried to pass the had in the competition. In the end, he thought he had arrived past the Hand and reached the 5 pillars of Wisdom, but he was then disappointed to find that he was standing on the palm of the hand of Pra Urai and that the 5 pillars were the fingers of Urai's Hand. Heng Jia was then punished by being buried under a mountain for 500 years. ------------------ All your orders will be sent out 100% compostable or reusable packaging I strive to minimise my environmental footprint as much as I can from how I get my stones and where from to how they are sent to you.
