This is a golden pocket sized carry-along Tibetan protective charm ideal for your wallet or purse. It features a lovely image of the Goddess of Victorious Parasol (Ushnisha Sitatapatra) standing gracefully on a lotus.
Ushnisha Sitatapatra, which translates as "The Victorious White Parasol", is a female form of Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. Like him in his elaborate form, she also has a thousand eyes that watch over living beings, and a thousand arms that protect and assist them. Thus she symbolizes the power of active compassion. She is shown holding a parasol, a symbol of protection and victory, which is why she is also known as the "Goddess of Victorious Parasol" or the "Goddess of the Glorious White Umbrella". Her parasol indicates her ability to protect sentient beings from natural catastrophes, diseases, and so forth. She is white in color, because the principal means by which she accomplishes this function is the enlightened-energy of pacification. Buddha pronounced her role to be "to cut asunder completely all malignant demons, to cut asunder all the spells of others... to turn aside all enemies and dangers and hatred." Hence when called upon, this powerful deity offers protection against natural catastrophes, enemies, legal entanglements, diseases, poverty, curses, evil spirits, and so forth. Her invocation mantra is "Om Sit Ta Ta Pa Trey Hum Phet".
Carry this Goddess of Victorious Parasol Lucky Card Amulet with you everywhere and be protected from all sorts of calamities and misfortunes, including illnesses and spirit harm.
