People at that time used to pray piously for gods’ blessing. They painted incantations, totems and other symbolic patterns in the ancient Veda (origins of various patterns on today’s Dzi) on stones to sublimate their spirit. Veda recorded, seriously tortured by geographical environment and natural calamities, people at that time prayed to gods for blessing and help, and naturally, “Dzi” emerged. Meanwhile, they intermingled various medicines with the motif of incantations and totems into stones in hope to get blessing and help from gods. Bead pronounces as DZI in Tibetan language, meaning beauty、authority and wealth, and reads as "Meiziga " in Sanskrit. However, it was piously used as a sacrifice to Buddha gods in the 15th year of Zhenguan (641AD) for Tang Taizong when Wencheng princess married Tibetan King Songtsen Gampo, Wencheng took one statue of Buddha from India as dowry. Later, this statue was housed in Jokhang Temple in Lhasa studded with over hundreds of Dzi Beads by Tibetan people, including three nine-eyed Dzi Beads, and scores of three-eyed, two–eyed, treasure bottle Dzi beads (also called immortality bottle Dzi), tiger-stripe Dzi, etc. At present, it is exhibited as an oblation in the Jokhang Temple hall in Lhasa. Historical records suggest that the grassland channel between Yuyuan and Tibet was an important approach for culture exchanges between Tibet and northern grassland. This channel has already offered service as early as in the 5th century BC. Long history, beautiful and mysterious legends along with Tibetan people’s piety for Dzi bead make Dzi bead passed on from generation to generation and an apple in people’s eyes. Dzi beads are found mainly in such lands in Himalayas as Tibet, East Tibet , Bhutan , Sikkim , Ladak, etc, this is one kind of scarce gem. Tibetan people consider Dzi as “Tianyanzhu” (divine eye Dzi). It’s said that the history of "Tianyanzhu" can be traced back to 5,000 years ago. At that time Tibetan people found a strong magnetic field around this ore, exploited it and shaped it into such forms as pestle, round board, etc. but technology at that time was so backward that people just got some gray ores without obvious grains from shallow mine layer. Then, Tibetan people drew various kinds of lucky patterns (such as treasure bottle, lotus flower, tiger's stripe, eye line, lines) on them and processed them with high temperature to deepen pigment on them. If a Dzi bead was held by a great person who practiced Buddhism or Taoism, it would be endowed with inconceivable magical power. It’s told that only those with much felicity have chance to own such a lucky bead.
