Since time immemorial, we have believed in ‘lucky’ objects – such as wearing the right gemstones, wearing the right colours especially on festive days, starting ventures on lucky days, and arranging our homes in certain lucky ways. For instance, in Indian culture, most people avoid wearing black on festive days.
The ancient texts reveal the secrets of the sacred symbols. The great seers have discovered with their intuition that there are certain objects that bring good luck. The FORM of these objects lends a divine and positive energy to them. You can EMPLOY them to solve your problems and direct your LIFE and thoughts towards prosperity and peace.
The Jaina scriptures speak of eight such sacred symbols which bestow ‘mangal’ or good luck in our life. Among the Jains, the Shwetambar sect speaks of the following symbols which make up the Ashtamangal.
