The seven emblems of royalty (Tib. rgyal srid sna bdun) are the seven possessions of a universal monarch (chakravartin). They are:

  1. the precious golden wheel,
  2. the precious wish-fulfilling jewel,
  3. the precious queen,
  4. the precious minister,
  5. the precious elephant,
  6. the precious horse,
  7. and the precious general.

These symbolize the seven noble riches.
