The symbol of golden fish

(Skt. suvarnamatsya; Tib. gser nya) is one of the eight auspicious symbols of Buddhism. It consists of two fish, which usually appear standing vertically with their heads facing inward toward each other.

The pair of fish is an ancient pre-Buddhist symbolof the two sacred rivers of India, the Ganga and the Yamuna. Symbolically, these two rivers represent the lunar and solar channels, which originate in the nostrils and carry the alternating rhythms of breath or prana.


In Buddhism, golden fish symbolize happiness, because they have complete freedom in the water. They represent fertility and abundance because they multiply very quickly. Fish often swim in pairs, and in China they represent marital unity and fidelity, where a pair of fish is often given as a wedding gift.

Jesus Christ and Buddha are known as "fishermen of men", because they save mortals from the ocean of suffering.

Dans le bouddhisme le poisson d’Or représente les êtres vivants qui pratiquent le dharma ( extrait : Les Grands Éveillés, les Bouddhas, retrouvent ce chemin qui est le « support » de l’ascèse menant à la Connaissance transcendante, à la cessation de l’illusion du « moi » et à l’atteinte de l’Inconditionné, l’Absolu ; ainsi, tous les « problèmes » de la condition humaine sont anéantis. Dans la Bible le poisson Noun נ, Josué, fait entrer les enfants d’Israël dans la Terre promise. C’est également le symbole que Jésus a pris, Elohim est symbolisé par ce symbole signifiant l’espace cosmique, les eaux d’en-haut.
