Varja Necklace - Bone / One Size


The Vajra (Dorje) symbolizes strength and wisdom. Carved out of yak bone, with adjustable cotton waxed cord. Symbolically a Dorje represents the thunderbolt of enlightenment, that abrupt change in human consciousness which is recognised by all the great religions as a pivotal episode in the lives of mystics and saints.

The transformative enlightenment experience is recounted in the various religions. In the Christian tradition, the conversion of Saul of Tarsus is a well known example and that of Muhammed on the mountain is fundamental to Moslem belief. For Buddhists, it is what occurred to the Buddha and to all those who experience kensho-satori (Enlightenment), the dropping away of self. The Tibetans call this the Great Death to distinguish it from that physical one which will be the experience of us all.

The yak is a long-haired animal found throughout the Himalayan region of south Central Asia, the Tibetan Plateau and as far north as Mongolia and Russia. All the yak bones used in our jewelry are the leftover from the domestic population that died from natural causes!

This Necklace is carefully hand made by superior crafts people, exiled Tibetans refugees living in India, Nepal, Bhutan, Mongolia and elsewhere.  Your purchase directly assists in the day to day lives of these refugees and aids in preserving and expanding the unique, rich Tibetan heritage and culture. This is a Fair Trade item.

The Varja measures 1 3/4 inches high.  Cotton waxed cord can be adjusted by pulling up on slip knots.

Every purchase helps supply and distribute Vitamin A to Indian children in desperate need. Learn more!

Varja Necklace.

I ordered this necklace because I liked the symbols on the front of it. I have ordered several items from Sivana, and I was always pleased with the quality of the item, but I can't say the same for this necklace. It's rather cheap-looking and worth about one-third to price I paid. Also, be careful to read the return policy, and the return postage policy. If you got free shipping, you may have to pay not only the return postage, but original shipping costs as well.
