tibetan turquoise and coral kalachakra ring, hand inlaid and crafted in nepal. the kalachakra is a complex symbol that points the pathway to harmony and world peace, and is often referred to as the tibetan version of the peace sign. it depicts ten interlocking or stacked syllables of the kalachakra mantra (om ham ksha ma la va ra ya sva ha), commonly known as the 'all-powerful ten'. the interlocking body of this mystical monogram is composed of seven syllables written in an indian/buddhist sanskrit script. a broad horizontal bar crowns the seven syllables with a crescent moon, a sun disc, and a dissolving flame-tip which completes the ten stacked syllables. the entire symbolism relates to all three aspects of the kalachakra tantra - the external, internal, and alternative.
