Mind Over Matter

Sure, I hope everyone shops at The Golden Braid for books and gifts that really speak to us and those we care about the most. But you really don’t have to spend a dime on the one thing that you truly want and desire for yourself.

I think if you really get quiet for a while (for some a long while) with a clear mind and no ego you will come to the conclusion that what most of us really want is peace of mind. Certainly there is no item and no amount of money that will afford us the opportunity to be at peace- to be happy. In fact, if you haven’t noticed, those of us with too many possessions and full focus on the cash rarely have the peace and happiness we desire.

Buddha Board

Live in the moment with the Original Buddha Board. With just a dab of water, each stroke of the brush appears like black ink on the surface. Similar to watercolor painting, the Buddha Board produces soft, beautiful images. As the water slowly evaporates, your painting fades and a new blank canvas is revealed.

The Bible
Illustrated by Chagall

The celebrated artist Marc Chagall began illustrating the Bible in 1931, and it became his lifelong passion. This extraordinary volume includes more than 130 pages of his finest works, paired with three books from the Old Testament. Chagall's illustrations reflect his Jewish heritage and his view of the complex relationship between God and man, presaging many of the subjects and themes in his later work. Originally published in France, the extensively illustrated, chunky, hand-sized book is a delightful combination of the popular artist's evocative style alongside the most familiar stories from the Bible.
