This Too Shall Pass Ring

It is said King Solomon once asked of his most trusted advisor to find him a ring with something inscribed on it with magical powers.

The ring's inscription was to convey a timeless wisdom that King Solomon was searching for. His instruction was that it have power that "If a happy man looks at it, he becomes sad, and if a sad man looks at it, he becomes happy."

His advisor devotedly searched high and low for many months and finally, one day, while walking through the poorest quarters of Jerusalem passed by a poor merchant and asked him "Have you by any chance heard of a magic ring that makes the happy wearer forget his joy and the broken-hearted wearer forget his sorrows?"

He watched the grandfather take a plain gold ring from his carpet and engrave something on it. When the advisor read the words on the ring, his face broke out in a wide smile. The jeweler had written three Hebrew letters on the gold band: gimel, zayin, yud, which began the words "Gam zeh ya'avor" -- "This too shall pass."

At the moment Solomon received the ring and put it on his finger, he realized that his wisdom, wealth and tremendous power were but fleeting things. At the same time he saw that his deep sorrows would also pass into happiness. The precious gift of this message is to remind us always of the ephemeralness of each moment and to live it fully and with gratitude, no matter what it brings us.

For this too, shall pass.

The copper, inscribed center portion of this ring rotates so that you can always remember that the wheel of life is always turning.

Handmade from sterling silver and copper.

tulku "the form body of a Buddha"
In the Tibetan tradition, a tulku is the recognized reincarnation of a past buddhist master who takes rebirth to bring blessings and benefit to all beings. Tulku jewels, like the name they embody, represent the rebirth of spirit into a new form. They are tools to remind us of our divine nature which is unbounded by time or space.

TULKU donates custom amulets and a percentage of all proceeds towards the following organizations:

One Heart Worldwide
One Heart World-Wide has developed an unique model to prevent the deaths of mothers and their infants in remote rural areas of the world. Simply put, we surround each mother and infants with a “Network of Safety” to insure that they will survive pregnancy, childbirth and the first months of life.

Blue Deer Center
The Blue Deer Center provides an important setting for teachings and practices that promote balanced relationship with the natural world. We particularly welcome ancestral approaches to healing, ritual, and retreat. The Center's origins are rooted in the Huichol shamanic tradition and our connection to the universal and sacred spirit of fire.
