Everything about the Buddhist path is meant to soften our heart and mind and reduce our feelings of dependence on ideas and social status, so that we become more kind, compassionate and more aware of the basic fundamental Buddhist principles in daily life. If we wear and use our Buddha Pendants as a form of skillful means, by practicing spiritual qualities like compassion and tolerance in our daily lives, then over time our continued practice can us lead to awakening and ever-lasting joy and peace.
