For centuries, many Tibetan Buddhists have believed that carrying Tibetan amulets, such as Buddha Images or other religious signs gives them luck and protection, and will never leave home without it. The use of Tibetan amulets is to avert danger, to dispel evil, to protect from disease. It is believed that Tibetan amulets will help one to gain great wealth, fortune, charm and success while at work or business. Usually, Tibetan amulets are made of Sterling silver, Yak Bone and other metal as well. It is important that Tibetan amulets be treated with respect by wearers.
