Snakes bring luck and wealth. They have had a special and respected place in various cultures. Even in the ancient times snakes were associated with power. It is also believed that they are a symbol of wisdom and spiritual energy – this is why in the Tibetan culture they are carried as amulets. In the Buddhist culture, for a change, snakes are considered to be sacred animals, providing protection and safety as they might help humans uncover their inner force. When it comes to India, a pair of snakes is worshipped as a symbol of fertility.
