Obsidian Thousand Hands Buddha and Zodiac Pendant
The person who wears a Buddha pendant around the neck attracts positive energy. They emit positive waves into the environment around them. The belief is all of the entire negativity is destroyed and a fighting spirit is generated within the person.
When coming up with the years of the same zodiac signs of one’s birth year, called Ben Ming Nian in Chinese, one would be unlucky and should pay great attention to restrain his or her own behaviors to tide over the difficulty every 12 years. In Taoism, each year has a certain god called Taisui in charge of the world. People meeting their Ben Ming Nian would go to temples to worship the year’s Taisu god to pray for good luck and avoid disasters. There is also a tradition of wearing in red to exorcise evil spirits.
