The Mystic Knot bangle is one of the eight lucky signs of Buddhism. It has this position because of the way it can be twined into a figure “8” without ever having an endpoint. The number 8 has always been a lucky number for the Chinese because saying “8” in Chinese sounds like “fortune”. Because of this reason, this all-around good luck symbol has become an icon for the endless flow of longevity, prosperity, triumph, love, and health. In Buddhist beliefs, this knot is a symbol of the neverending cycle, providing the ability to overcome illnesses and misfortunes and instead creating fame and fortune.
