Tibetan Buddhist prayer boxes are also called Gau, Ghau, Gao. Prayer boxes are small amulet containers that can be worn as jewelry. Prayer boxes usually contain a written prayer or a sacred mantra diagram such as the kalachakra. The mantra is wrapped around the inside of the prayer box. Some prayer boxes are also empty and you can put your own message inside. Our Tibetan prayer boxes are made from sterling silver, gold, and copper. Chains and cords for our prayer boxes, and small gift bags for our jewelry, are available in our jewelry accessories section. If you are interested in pendants, please see our Tibetan silver pendants and Sterling Silver Pendants sections.
