Everything about the Buddhist path is meant to soften our heart and mind. It can show us how to reduce our feelings of dependence on ideas and social status. And at the same time, teach us how to be more kind and compassionate in our daily lives. Ultimately, it can make us more aware of the basic fundamental Buddhist principles. In Buddhism we're taught to wear our Buddha Jewelry as a form of skillful means. This means, to practice spiritual qualities like compassion and tolerance. If we do this, then over time our continued practice can lead to awakening and ever-lasting joy and peace.
