I designed the 'From You With Love' bracelet to keep every new owner protected and reminded, every day, to look out for each other.
With every bracelet you purchase, you will support a child in need - From YOU With Love
'From You With Love' is a concept that was created high in the Himalayan Valley of Ladakh in the midst of the 2010 Flood disaster, completely inspired by the love and generosity endowed upon us on our quest for survival by the warm people of Ladakh. Hundreds of people perished, lost their families, homes and livelihood when the rains came and created devastating landslides, causing the rivers to swell and overtake the land. We were some of the lucky ones who were guided to safety, by creating the " From You With Love " bracelet we want to raise funds for educational opportunities in remote regions of the Himalayas, also known as Little Tibet and give back the love and overwhelming generosity we received there.
"We were guided and protected during the floods of Ladakh, and now we want to guide and protect the future of the next generation." Tanzin Norbu .
The Dorje (Double Cross) "classic" bracelet is made of Brass, the slider + end clip are made of alloy and the beads are made out of wood.
The "classic" Bracelet was inspired by the Tibetan Dorje (in Sanskrit called 'Vajra' ) which means 'thunderbolt' or ' diamond'. It represents spiritual power. One can meditate on the Dorje to achieve what is called 'the thunderbolt experience' - it is a symbol of union of the relative and absolute truths. Relative truth is what we experience in everyday life, conversely, absolute truth is the timeless state of being unified with nature and everything around us. Therefore the Dorje is also thought of as a spiritual weapon to banish non truths and bring in the truth. And when worn, it reminds the wearer just like a diamond, the indestructibility of knowledge
Each bracelet will come in a pouch.
On the back of the pouch, you will find a Tibetan flag, representing a combination of mantras, special prayers with auspicious symbols. Prayer flags are a celebration of life, affection and gratitude. They are an important part of day to day life in the Buddhist community. Please note, any tiny imperfections you may notice on the pouch is evidence they are handmade and hand printed by a Buddhist community in India. And, by purchasing one of these beautiful bracelets you will also through ' From You With Love ' help support the Buddhist community in Ladakh. Thank you !!!
The Dorje (Double Cross) is 20mm x 20mm
the beads are 5mm - the bracelet has an adjustable string to fit different size wrists and can be worn by women or men.
Brass (alloy of copper and zinc) , red string, and wooden beads.
In time the Brass "classic" Dorje will naturally change colour, it signifies just as in the Buddhist belief the 'Impermanence' of life, that nothing is forever, and this too will change ...
The wooden beads represent the Buddhist prayer beads, which is another form of meditation.
And, the red string came as an inspiration from "Kalava" the sacred hindu thread tied by a priest whilst performing Hindu rituals, believed to worn off evil from the person wearing it.
According to Buddhist tradition, a protection cord may be red, yellow, blue or black.
