THE GASSHO CEREMONY is Taoist in origin. It was then adopted by the Buddhists and is now used by Spiritual Seekers all over the world. The items included in this Gassho Ceremonial packet are:
Oriental Coins – representing wealth and well-being,
A Candle – representing light and focus,
A Bell – representing celebration.
All three items rest on a handsome bamboo trivet. In Asian cultures, bamboo is often chosen as a basic element because of its combination of strength and flexibility, and it has come to represent harmony and balance in one’s life. (You may substitute a wax votive candle of your own if you prefer a real flame.) Your desk, your coffee table, or your bedside table are all good places to keep these ceremonial tools so that they are convenient for you to use every day. The package will even travel easily with you in your suitcase, backpack, or briefcase.
