Dzi Tibet bead in a butterfly setting
The legend of the Dzi and the purpose of the bead varies with each one. Some of the legends say that Dzi are the droppings of the Garuda, while others say they are gifts from the Gods and only those with pure Karma will ever find them.
Most Tibetans believe that the Dzi were once insects that lived in a kind of nest call “dzitshang” in Tibet. When the insects were unearthed they will continue to move for a while and eventually become petrified in the form of Dzi that exist today.
Another legend said that there was a time when Tibet was overwhelmed by severe epidemic and the Tibetans were facing very hard life. Fortunately, the compassionate Vajravarahi Buddha came to rescue by releasing the magical Dzi Beads from the sky. The beads are believed to bring good luck, ward off evil, and protect the wearer from physical harm. What a wonderful pendant this is.
