Anyone know what this is?
« on: January 29, 2018, 05:20:23 pm »
My mother knows I enjoy studying Religions so she bought me this and called it a "Buddha Bead," but I've no clue what it is or if it has any relation to buddhism whatsoever. Anyone here happen to know?

Looks like an ear ring. :namaste:
What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

I have seen that before, not that particular one almost certainly but I have seen something very similar. Problem is I have seen a lot of antiques, and the memory is of something old I think,  I tried every kind of search I could think of because that pattern is so familiar. It's been on my mind and I expected it to come to me like a word I had forgotten but it's just not happening. I wish someone had known, it's silly but I know I have seen that pattern on something very similar.
