Tau Hangarite - order of symmetry

195.00

This Taonga is names Tau Hangarite. This name means order of symmetry. It is a reflection of some observable universal truths and laws. Many people speak of  the saying "as above, so below", however most do not really understand the actual meaning. In this context, it describes the laws of causes or actions, and their effects.

At a basic level, gravity dictates that what ever is under its influence, must behave in a specific way. This is unavoidable. In the same way, when we are under the influence of negative actions, only negative results will follow. On the flip side, when we are under the influence of positive actions, then it is guaranteed that positive results will eventuate. (Even if it takes a long time for this to happen the results are certain).   

In the centre of this carving is a protruding inlay of Mother of Pearl. This symbolises wisdom. With such wisdom we can learn to work within the constraints of the governing systems and out of this maintain a personal freedom to choose happiness. 

The design on the back represents how to use the laws of cause and effect to attain the ultimate meaning of human existence, great enlightenment. Permanent inner peace.
