The Eight Auspicious Symbols is the most famous set of symbols in Tibetan Buddhism. The symbols or “symbolic attributes” (Tibetan: ཕྱག་མཚན་, THL: chaktsen) are yidam and teaching tools. Eight is a symbol of infinity and a constant flow of energy and power. It is often related to material wealth, money, and success in business. Also, number 8 is representing pleasures, and the dark side of this figure is just that – excessive usage of vices.
