Dzi (pronounced Zee) is a Tibetan word used to describe a patterned, usually agate, of mainly oblong, round, cylindrical or tabular shape pierced lengthwise called Heaven's Bead (tian zhu) in Chinese.

The meaning of the Tibetan word "Dzi" translates to "shine, brightness, clearness, splendour". The beads originate in the Tibetan cultural sphere and can command high prices and are difficult to come by. They are found primarily in Tibet, but also in neighbouring Bhutan, Ladakh and Sikkim. Shepherds and farmers pick them up in the grasslands or while cultivating fields. Because dZi are found in the earth, Tibetans cannot conceive of them as man-made. Since knowledge of the bead is derived from oral traditions, few beads have provoked more controversy concerning their source, method of manufacture and even precise definition. This all contributes to making them the most sought after
and collectable beads on earth.

延 传于西藏至今约2000至 2500年之久,被西藏人视为活的宝石,是佛教圣物,为藏密七宝之一。相传,天珠原是属于“天神的宝物”,传奇地降到人间,被藏族人发现,因而受到虔诚膜 拜和恭敬收藏供养,世代相传,成为西藏人精神与实质上无限珍贵的财富。西藏人认为,要有很大的福报与缘分才能够拥有一颗老天珠,一旦拥有了它,便是无限福 慧的开始。


国 早在唐朝时期就已有关于天珠的记载,唐文成公主下嫁藏王松赞干布时,最珍贵的陪嫁品是根据释尊十二岁时的身相所铸造的释迦佛像,千里迢迢地从长安送到西 藏,佛像的佛冠、批肩、饰带及法衣上,镶了诸多珍珠、玛瑙、绿松石、珊瑚及百余颗各式各样的天珠,包括三颗九眼天珠,及三眼天珠、二眼天珠、宝瓶天珠、虎 纹天珠和其它带眼天珠等,华丽精美。目前这尊释迦牟尼佛现安奉于拉萨(Lhasa)大昭寺的释迦殿内。由此可见,天珠自古以来就是供佛的圣品,也是珍稀尊 贵的宝物。

自 于西藏矿区的至纯千年老天珠,蕴藏于喜马拉雅山域,是稀有宝石。天珠为九眼石页岩,含有玉质及玛瑙成份,外表颜色大致分为黑棕色至浅棕色,其图腾为乳白色 线纹,深至中心点。其内部结构具有天然宇宙强烈的正性磁场,重量重而质地细密,硬度高。经日本研究证实为三、四千年前,火星上的陨石,撞击在喜马拉雅山 域,使天珠在强烈撞击下产生含有十四种火星上的元素,尤以“镱”元素的磁场特别强烈,造成天珠有不可思议的神奇感应。


西藏 至纯千年老天珠为稀有之宝物,具有超自然之磁场。用于供佛,能感召庄严的容颜及人际关系与财源之顺畅,有利于菩萨道之展开。天珠的磁场还具有收摄平和心性 的功能,有助于修行者引导心性趣入悲智圆满的境界。天珠的纯天然能量磁波能平衡室内正负能量,改变磁场,驱除一切晦气、恶煞,具有扶正抗邪之强烈特性。能 以超自然能量之神力,挡开无预警状态下所发生的一切事故,使大事化小,小事化无。拥有天珠乃福慧圆满之象征,佩带者常有心想事成的感觉,能促进谈话时的气 氛和谐,帮助人际关系之开展,使凡事自信,事业蒸蒸日上。直至今日,天珠仍深获世界各地人们的种爱,是护身、修持、健康的圣品,也是地位财富的象征。
