∞ The Story Behind the Blessing Bracelets ∞
In Himalayan Buddhist cultures, monks will distribute “blessing cords” to their followers. These cords are typically red but can be other colors as well. The monk or monks in their monastery bless the strings in a ceremony with prayers and offerings. Rinpoche performed an ancient ceremony with these beautiful, multicolored silk and brass bracelets to bless them and those who will wear them. The strands symbolize the enduring connection of the Siddhartha School community across continents–strands of support that weave the school’s donors, teachers, and parents together to lead Ladakhi youth by the hand through their educational journeys.
Visit the Silk Road Spaceship website to learn about their important work and to purchase Rinpoche’s Blessing Bracelet to support the work of the Siddhartha School.
