The mystic knot, which is also recognized by other names (lucky, love, infinity or never-ending knot) is one of the eight lucky signs of Buddhism. It has this position because of the way it can be twined into a figure “8” without ever having an end point. The number 8 has always been a lucky number for the Chinese due to the fact that saying “8” in Chinese sounds like “fortune”. Because of this reason, this all-round good luck symbol has become an symbol for the endless flow of longevity, prosperity, triumph, love and health. In Buddhist beliefs, this knot is a symbol of the neverending cycle, providing the ability to overcome illnesses and misfortunes and instead creating fame and fortune. It is also believed to be an icon of “persistent love”, and is therefore used as a gift for couples getting married. Because it is in relation to the number 8, this good luck charm has intense power in Period 8 (2004 – 2024).
This good luck charm is said to have the magical effect of curing untamed tempers. It will bring a calm and sensibility in situations that demand it; simply rubbing the knot when you are feeling irritated or impatient will relieve your stress and allow for mental clarity. The same goes for fear; holding and rubbing this Lucky Knot when you are fearful is said to create a sense of stability and safety. It is for these reasons that this lucky charm should always be in close reach; the same goes for those who are making long journeys abroad, because it is believed to provide protection against dangers such as accidents, thefts and kidnaps. The Mystic Knot is also reputed to act as a potent love charm that will improve your relationship luck. In short, the existence of this lucky charm in your life will create benefits in all the aspirations and goals that you have.
Excellent gift for just about anyone.
