FACTS & HISTORY: For the Chinese, the tortoise is sacred and symbolizes longevity, power, and tenacity.
Another aspect of the tortoise is its long life, endurance, and wisdom. Tortoises and turtles are revered for their long lives. Their shells also represent protection.
In addition, in Buddhism, there is a story of a turtle that reminds us of how precious life is. A human birth is said to be as rare as a blind turtle in a vast ocean that swims up and pokes its head out of the center of a single yoke floating on the surface of the water.
