Tibetan Dzi Stone Beads meanings and pictures  

To Tibetans and other Himalayan people, the DZI is a “precious jewel of supernatural orig n” with great power to protect its wearer from disaster. The Tibetan people believe DZI beads are spiritual stones fallen from Heaven which bring good karma to those who own them. The ancient DZI absorbs cosmic energy from the universe. Tibetans generally believe that DZI beads are of divine origin and therefore not created by human hands. Some say they are dropped by the Gods to benefit those who have the good fortune to find them. Since they are believed to have a divine source, they are considered to be a very precious and powerful amulet. Beads can often be seen in Tibetan temples adorning the most revered statues and sacred relics. They are thought to bring good fortune, ward off evil, and protect the wearer from physical harm and illness. It has even been claimed by Tibetan refugees, that they protect the wearer from knife and bullet attacks!

西藏人心中珍宝-天珠、聖鉄力萊项链

天珠,又称“天眼珠”,主要产地在西藏、藏东、不丹、锡金、拉答克等喜马拉雅山域,是一种稀有宝石。天珠为九眼石页岩,含有玉质及玛瑙成份,为藏密七宝之 一,史书记载为“九眼石天珠”。天珠的藏语发音为“思怡”(DZI),为美好、威德、财富之意,而梵文是以“昧自尬”称呼天珠。

西藏人至今仍认为天珠是天降石。其历史可溯及五千年前,当时西藏人发现此矿具有强大的磁场,乃 开采此矿并研磨成杵、圆板等形状,由于当时之工程技术并不发达,故仅能取得颜色灰白、无明显纹路之浅层矿石,因此西藏人绘制各种吉祥图案于上(如宝瓶、莲 花、虎纹、眼纹、线条等),经高温处理使颜料深入矿石内,若再经大修行者加持,更可拥有不可思议的神奇力量。非福报深厚者,实无缘得此天降圣石。

悠久的历史,美丽神秘的传说,加之西藏人虔诚地收藏供养,世代相传,天珠便成为人们心中珍贵的宝物了。

Tibentan Dzi bead is a bead stone of mysterious origin worn as part of a necklace and sometimes as a bracelet. In several Asian cultures, including that of tibet, the bead is considered to provide positive spiritual benefit. These beads are generally prized as protective amulets and are sometimes ground up into a powder to be used in traditional Tibetan medicine. Beads subject to this process have small “dig marks” where a portion of the bead has been scraped or shaved away to be ground into the medicine.

The most highly prized dzi beads are made of natural agate and were apparently manufactured in ancient times by an unknown people. There are also new dzi which gain popularity amongst Tibetans.

天珠的传说:

3000 多年前,青藏高原的藏族先民正经历着一场空前的大瘟疫。瘟疫横扫高原,病痛折磨着众生。文 殊菩萨的前身曼殊室利佛正好经过喜马拉雅山脉上空,眼见这世间疾苦不甚悲悯,于是向凡间撒下 “天华”。

“天华”降到青藏高原的各个角落,百姓们将它捡起, 带在身边。奇迹发生了,凡是捡到“天华” 的人,病痛一天天地消除。最终,依靠这神奇的天降石,青藏高原恢复了一派生机。

“天华”便是今天所说的天珠。——这是笼罩着谜样光环的西藏 “天珠” 的众多传说之一。

巨型六眼天珠

藏族地区有 “藏传七宝” 说:天珠、唐卡、砗磲、琥珀、绿松石、珊瑚、嘎乌,其中天珠被列为七宝之首。

现在,在藏传佛教流传区域,一颗天珠的价格从 几十元到上百万不等。

在九寨沟藏羌工艺博物馆,工作人员给记者展示了一颗巨型六眼天珠,为红玉髓材质。

据称这颗天珠曾在布达拉宫受过3年香火,后由西藏一 位不愿透露姓名的神秘人士捐赠给了博物馆。博物馆将它作为镇馆之宝,是非卖品。

这颗天珠体型饱满巨大,十分罕见,但它也并非完美,一端有破损,工作人员介 绍说,可能是早期被取材入药所致。

谈起这颗天珠的价值,工作人员说,估计可以抵上半个甲蕃藏寨了吧。

脱离了藏文化这个大环境,人们或许无法理解天珠的意义。

在西藏,人们说 “请养” 天珠,希望天珠给自己带来福分。

在西藏,真正的至纯老天珠是可以像固定资产一样作为抵押到银行进行贷款的——这是藏族人民在自己的独特文化中赋予天珠的集体价值评定。

In several Asian cultures, including that of Tibet, the bead is considered to provide positive spiritual benefit. These beads are generally prized as protective amulets and are sometimes ground up into a powder to be used in traditional Tibetan medicine. Beads subject to this process have small “dig marks” where a portion of the bead has been scraped or shaved away to be ground into the medicine.

Beads that are broken are believed to have a diluted benefit, because they have taken the brunt of the force that it is assumed would have otherwise impacted the wearer.
