This pendant features Tibeto-Mongolian pakpa script on the front, which reads “dulshuk” (བརྟུལ་ཞུགས།), roughly translated as “disciplined engagement.”

While explanations and translations vary, I personally think it’s nicely encapsulated in Padampa Sangye’s first teaching to Machig Labdrön, which is written on the back of the piece in Tibetan. Sarah Harding translates this verse as:

“Expose your hidden faults.
Overcome hesitations.
Carry what you dare not.
Cut your fetters.
Give up attachments.
Keep to haunted places (or sensitive/difficult places, “nyensa”). 

Know that beings are as vast as the sky.

In haunted places, seek the buddha within yourself.”
