A Kila (also known as a Phurba) is a ceremonial object with many uses. It is used in Tibetan ceremonies to mark the center of the universe. A Tibetan Buddhist monk puts the Kila into the ground and the ceremonies are performed around it. A Kila is also used to ceremonially stir medicine and is believed to have immense powers. Kila are known to have existed in Shamanic Tibetan animalist beliefs before the arrival of Buddhism, but have become incorporated into Tibetan Buddhism.
Made with stainless steel, the pendant will never tarnish.

Traditionally, shrine pendants like these would be worn by Tibetan Buddhist pilgrims during spiritual pilgrimage. It is believed by those on pilgrimage that danger will not come from the direction where the pendant is facing. At night, the pendant serves as a shrine in the tent camps. This is a more modern version of the ancient styles.
