Buddhists use a prayer box pendant called a “Ghau” in Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, and India. The Ghau opens to a concealed inner space, to hold a picture of favorite deity, a scroll of sacred mantras, special herbs, or sacred relics. Used as an amulet to ward off negative energy and attract blessings. Also as a portable shrine and is worn on a cord around the neck and hung close to the heart.
