This meaningful and unique charm bracelet consists of an antique bronze cable chain from which white freshwater pearls and charms stating “Namaste” and “Love”, as well as Lotus and Heart images dangle onto the wrist. This bracelet is a wonderful expression of our divine and human connection to each other and to ourselves.
The gesture Namaste is an ancient Sanskrit greeting representing the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us. Roughly translated, the word means “I bow to the God within you” or “The Spirit within me honors the Spirit in you”.
Thich Nhat Hanh states this ancient truth No Mud, No Lotus succinctly, “Suffering is a kind of of mud to help the lotus flower of happiness grow. There can be no lotus flower without the mud.” The mud nourishing the roots represents our messy human lives. It is within our human experiences and our suffering that we seek to break free and bloom. But while the flower rises above the mud, the roots and stem remain in the mud, where we live our lives. A Zen verse says, “May we exist in muddy water with purity, like a lotus.”
