The Shamballa bracelet protects against negative influences, brings peace of mind and helps to change lives for the better, they say.
And in ancient times bracelets Shambala used for these purposes in Nepal and Tibet.

Take it easy! The Shamballa bracelet is just  a stylish fashion jewelry, no more!


The Shamballa bracelets

Now became fashionable bracelets "Shambhala".
Of course, the vast majority of these bracelets are or expensive jewelry, or Chinese-made (the price is 2 to 10 dollars), or something homemade.
As always, at the height of fashion sold many fakes.

Here I wandered for several days, waiting for the tour group. I bought a bag of fine woolen clothes and many interesting nepalien things. But I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY  SHAMBALLA BRACELETS!

A local journalist, my  friend, showed me his beloved city Katmandu.
Hi did not say anything about Shamballa bracelets!

Then I met a tour group. A wonderful tour guide, himself a dedicated Buddhist, showed us churches, monasteries, Boutdanath and other attractions of Kathmandu. He told a lot of interesting, especially the history of Buddhism.

Then we have been traveling around the Nepal country for a long time. We walked along the famous "capital of hippies in Nepal" Pokhara, staring at the products in local markets. Went into the forgotten monasteries high in the Himalayas, they sacrificed their coin.
We have not seen any Shamballa bracelets! and did not hear about them!

Wow, how out of luck ... : o)

May be, the Shamballa bracelet is not so ANCIENT thing?
