[TRS 143-4]; the five symbolic ornaments / seals [RY]

the five symbolic ornaments/ seals [IW]

The Five Symbolic Ornaments/Symbolic Seals/Ornamental Seals/Mudrās: 1. wheels ( 'khor lo), 2. earrings (rna cha), 3. necklace(s)/choker(s) (mgul rgyan), 4. bracelets (gdu bu), and 5. belt (ska rags). Technically 'mudrā-s', these have a similar physical-symbolic function to the usual sense of mudrā, but here the term has the specific meaning of certain bodily ornaments, each with a symbolic significance.
