Tibetan Buddhist items refer to the objects used by monks in Buddhist activities and rituals. Those Buddhist sacred objects are endowed with special meaning by the Dharma so that they are no longer ordinary Tibetan artifacts, but more sacred and solemn. There are many types of Tibetan Buddhist ritual items with different purposes, styles, and sizes, such as the prayer wheel, prayer beads, conch shell, vajra, and so on. Most of them drew on the appearance of Indian Buddhist items and integrated their own features. Tibetan Buddhist items are commonly used for offerings to the Buddhas, adorning the Bodhimanda and practicing dharma. This article mainly introduces the eight particular Tibetan ritual items.
