◎What is “Ryuhai (龍佩)”
- 龍 = Chinese dragon, the sacred creature that signifies the life itself
- 佩 = A decorative ornament to identify yourself
- 龍佩 = Ornament to identify yourself as a member of 龍’s family, and to show your determination to live at will just like 龍
Ryuhai’s original kanji is given as “龍佩”.
“龍佩 (Ryuhai)” was made as a quite indicative and eloquent ornament.
It is the identification of yourself as a member of 龍’s family and proves your determination to live at will like 龍.
In addition, 龍佩 also has a meaning of the pass to let you in 龍宮 so that you can access the origin of life.
The 龍佩’s first letter 龍 (Ryu), signifies Chinese dragons. For thousands of years, 龍 has been regarded as the sacred existence that can live at will by obtaining Cintamani, the wish-fulfilling jewel. 龍 is also the allegory or the symbol of life itself, for anybody can live at will by knowing their mind and true wishes as long as they live.
And because 龍 is the allegory of the life, 龍宮 (Ryugu), the palace where 龍 lives is also the meaningful and mysterious place that symbolizes the origin of life.
The second letter 佩 (hai) signifies the ornament accessory hung from a decorative sash belt of traditional attire. In ancient East Asian cultures, 佩 used to represent its owner's house or organization to prove his / her identity. They were used as the pass to go through checkpoints or to come into castles and palaces.
We are sure that 龍佩 would motivate and inspire you to live at will not only with its beauty but also with its powerful background and meaning.
