Gau are amulet boxes made of precious metals, turquoise, coral, or other jewels. Traditionally, Tibetans wear them around their neck, and inside the wearer places amulets that can help heal or prevent disease and serve as a protection talisman. Included are papers ‘prescribed’, made and blessed by a Lama to address specific life issues, such as health, happiness, prosperity, protection and attraction; also mantras, pictures, small Buddha statues and Tibetan medicine pills can be put in these special lockets.
