The Citamani

  • Source: E. Dale Saunders book MUDRA: A Study of Symbolic Gestures in Japanese Buddhist Sculpture
  • Bollingen / Princeton ISBN 0-691-09796-8, pages 154-55.
  • Tthe citamani is the three-pronged jewel whose prongs representing the Buddha, Darma teaching and Sangha community.
  • The citamani is the specific attribute of a type of Kannon known as Nyo-i-Kannon, grantor of desires.
  • As a rule, the divinity, with two arms, holds the jewel in one hand or between two hands.
  • In Japan, the "three jewels"(the Buddha, Darma teaching and Sangha community ) are often fused in a single pearl surmounted by a three-pronged flame.
  • Other divinities who sporadically carry the jewel are Fugen, Monju, and especially Hosho ( Ratnasambhava ), whose distinctive attribute it is.
