This bracelet is a gift from one of my friends. He had bought it from the budist monks in Ulan Ude, Russia. He said that he and the monks have blessed it by bathing it in vodka and left in a temple for one day, and he had drunk vodka with monks along the blessing process 🙂

“Like in other countries there is a mania for tattoos among criminals, but in Russia they give much more sense for those signs on their bodies. Each even smallest detail can be interpreted as a biography verse from the life of tattoo owner, both police and criminals can just look at the body of the tattooed person and tell all his deeds. They say these days there more freedom is allowed in decorating their bodies such way, but during the Soviet regime a person could earn big disgrace from his friends if he made a tattoo not according the rules.”
