    Characters

    Hey! I received a gift for my birthday. It's a buddhist bracelet apparently. There is three chinese characters on it. Well, i cant be sure because I don't know these characters yet. I tried to recreate it with mspaint because I dont have the chinese writting on my computer. It's not very clear on the bracelet so maybe theres missing some line. If someone knows this characters could you please tell me what is the meaning and the pinyin?

    The three characters:

    1) Lu4 = good fortune
    2) Shou4 = long life
    3) Fu2 = luck

    Most times Buddhist beads don't have characters on them. Especially not those characters. It sounds more like a Chinese good luck charm bracelet than a Buddhist one.

    Ok thanks, i found all the characters three seconds before you posted on the site Fa Hui gave me. It's not really easy to find on this site without the english meaning. So yeah i think you're right its more a chinese good luck charm bracelet but it was written "buddhist bracelet" ... Anyway.. Thanks

    No prob. I found the site yrs ago, it's a really good site but it does take some time to figure it out. There are some fun games on there as well.
