如何用英文簡單介紹「平安符」

今年暑期參加了美國暑期打工,

從台灣帶了一些龍山寺的平安符想當小禮物送給同事,

但是我英文真的不是普通的爛...

想送禮卻不知道怎麼介紹這是什麼><

請問有人能教我幾句簡單的英文,

讓我可以讓外國同事知道我送的「平安符」是什麼嗎?

請儘量不要用太難的單字,(不然我也背不起來)

希望能用簡單的句子即基礎的單字,

只要意思可以表達就好了!

畢竟不是要作文只是要傳達意思~

謝謝!!!

另外,想請問一下,

因為同事很多,龍山寺買的平安符太少不夠送,

我還有帶一些大眾廟的符,

但是不是買的,是廟裡免費索取的那種,

看起來不精緻,

就是紅色塑膠套(上面有中文),裏面有一張符,

不知道送這個會不會太失禮?

因為我聽說外國人看到有中文就會很開心,

是真的嗎?(因為免費的符真的不精緻也不怎麼漂亮,但是感覺很在地有台灣味就是了)

感謝大家的意見喔!

    平安符、幸運符 lucky charm符咒 spell香灰 incense ash觀世音 Mercy God of Buddhism發誓 swear swore sworn These lucky charms that I took (bought) from Long-Sun (Dragon Mountain) Temple , where is located at Taipei City mainly worships the Mercy God of Buddhism, are bags have Mercy God’s spells inside, when people is bringing the lucky charm will receive good luck and living safely, because the person has been being blessed by Mercy God. And because the amount of lucky charms that from Long-Sun Temple are not enough, so I went to another temple, where worships another Buddhism God who swore to save every sprit of people, to take some lucky charms of it, they are free , so the qualities are not as good as those from Long-Sun temple, I hope you can accept it happily.

    如向同事說明不夠的事由,應不會被見怪。
