The trumpet shell plays an important role in Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism and feng shui (the doctrine of harmonious arrangement and furnishing of living or working places). Feng Shui The trumpet shell plays an important role in the feng shui, because it has all kinds of good qualities: a feeling of peace and comfort in the house, as well as protection. According to the feng shui, placing such a shell in the southern corner of the living room acts as an amplifier of the popularity and reputation of the resident. Put smooth trumpet shells in the kitchen to create energy that works harmoniously and family friendly. Keep spiky shells on the window sill to attract energy that protects the house from accidents and damage. Always keep some trumpet shells in a basket on a table at the front door for a successful and satisfying career. Tibetan boeddhisme The trumpet shell is generally used to ‘call for religious gatherings’. It is also used to store ‘sacred water’, and as a musical instrument during puja ceremonies. What is a Puja? Puja is a ritual when meditating on one of the Bodhisattva’s or Buddhas. A ceremony in which prayers are addressed to the Buddhas for their blessing or help. There are different kinds of Puja’s, for various purposes in our lives. There are Puja’s for meditation, purification, removing obstacles, long life, dying, disease, doing business and so on. Pujas are carried out to ward off and clear the three forms of obstacles, conditions that prevent us from reaching our worldly and spiritual goals. India The trumpet shell is used to drive out evil spirits and to prevent natural disasters. Some even use it to “chase away poisonous creatures. And this shell is also used at Puja’s. Om Mani Padme Hum (OMPMH ) is the best known and most widely used Buddhist mantra. Anyone who feels inspired can use this mantra. So it does not require the dedication of a master. Cancelling or singing this mantra brings you to rest. Then you come back to yourself. Literally Om Mani Padme Hum means: ‘I honour the pearl in the lotus’. The mantra is addressed to the bodhisatva Avalokitesvara, who is asked for advice and comfort. This is also the owner of the jewel (wisdom) in the lotus. Avalokiteshvara is a Buddha, who often reveals himself as a saint. The Buddha symbolizes a great power of compassion. Without distinction and without partiality, this Buddha is given to all sentient beings.
