Lersi amulets.



Amulets and sacred objects of the Lersi.
*
The Lersi hermit tradition goes back to before the birth of the historical Buddha, whose parents received a visit from one of these holy men when the Buddha was only a baby!
*
The Lersi are traditionally represented as men of advanced age,
long hairs, bearded and wearing atiger skin. One often sees them depicted
with walking sticks embellished with fantastic animals
and carrying malas made of huge beads.
*
Sometimes one encounters statues and amulets
of animal faced Lersi (tiger, lion, monkey but also cow and even naga!).
*
Amulets of the Lersi are very powerful protection against black Magic.
