Product Info
The conch shell also Sankha is an emblem of power, authority and sovereignty; its blast is believed to banish evil spirits, avert natural disasters, and scare poisonous creatures. In Buddhism, the conch was adopted as a symbol of religious sovereignty and an emblem which fearlessly proclaimed the truth of the dharma. One of the 32 signs of a Buddha’s body is his deep and resonant voice, which is artistically symbolized in images of the Buddha by three conch-like curving lines on his throat. Shells which spiral to the right are very rare and considered especially sacred, the right spiral mirroring the motion of the sun, moon, planets and stars across the sky. Also, the hair whorls on Buddha’s head spiral to the right, as do his fine bodily hairs, the long white curl between his eyebrows and the conch like swirl of his navel. A shell is made into Tibetan ritual musical instruments by cutting off the end of its tip and furnishing it with a mouthpiece and an ornamental metal casing extending from the shell’s mouth.
