Buddhist Treasure Vase Tattoos

Buddhist treasure vaseBuddhist Treasure Vase Tattoos - The Treasure Vase - known also as the 'wealth vase' - and 'vase of inexhaustible treasure' - became the Buddhist symbol of spiritual abundance. As one of the Eight Auspicious Symbols of Buddhism, it represents not only the wealth of Buddha's teaching but his never-diminishing generosity and compassion. Legend attributes to it a special quality, that of always remaining full despite much being taken from it.

Here is a tattoo design for the eternal optimist. Wearing this design serves as a declaration that here stands a true believer in the benevolence of existence.

Other symbols often decorate the Treasure Vase, usually the lotus petal emblem and sometimes the Three Jewels which symbolize the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. As a motif woven into silk brocades, for example, it usually appears as a pair of vases. The symbol also shows up in carpets, wood carvings and wall paneling, usually in conjunction with other of the Eight Auspicious Symbols.

In Tibetan Buddhism, the Treasure Vase is also a symbol of protection displayed when undertaking special activities. Visiting dignitaries may be welcomed with the Treasure Vase design drawn in coloured powder sprinkled on the ground.

At the opening, a large jewel was placed to indicate that it was a 'treasure vase'. These pots became known as 'wealth vases' when they were filled with precious jewels and other sacred substances and the vases were placed on temple altars or at water sources to attract wealth and to create environmental harmony.
