I come from Xin Jiang which is in the far North of China. My city is a three hour drive from the Gobi Desert. All of the jade and agate on my website is hand picked from the Gobi Desert. It has a distinctive colour and texture.
I created these panda amulets because they are the perfect combination of Yin and Yang. These are made from agate stone.
The jade and stones are hand picked from the Gobi desert. They are then taken to the nearest local village where they are polished and hand carved. If they are small, they are made into amulets, and if they are large, they are made into energy stones.
Some of them are not carved but kept as energy stones. I keep these next to my computer to purify the air. I recommend you wear the energy stone amulets when practicing Qigong.
Jade is so valued in China that we have a saying, “Gold has value, jade is invaluable.” Shaolin Monks see it as a living thing and it has a long tradition of being used in Traditional Chinese Medicine alongside Qigong, acupuncture and Qigong massage. These are just a few of the health benefits:
- Purification and protection
- Increases your innate healing power
- Calming and grounding
- Aids longevity
- Protects against harmful rays of computers and phones.
At the Shaolin Temple, most students and monks wear a jade amulet or mala. It’s good to surround yourself with images that uplift and inspire you. Reminders that you are on the Shaolin Warrior path. Every piece of Jade with a carving has a deep symbolic meaning which comes from cosmological, mythical or Buddhist beliefs.
For example, Bodhidharma ( Damo) has a very special place in a Shaolin monk’s heart. The founder of Zen and the person who developed Shaolin martial arts. We see him as important a teacher as the Buddha was. Once you step on the path of Shaolin, this Indian master is your spiritual ancestor.
The Shaolin Warrior doesn’t just train in the training hall. Our practice is our life. Jade is not so well known in the West but it's as much a part of a Shaolin Monk's practice as Kung Fu and Qigong. It’s a highly revered part of Chinese culture and health. This is my motivation for sharing with you. I hope you enjoy and get great benefit.
