Buddha - A Symbol Of Serenity, Wisdom, And Compassion

One of my favorite symbols to work with when creating my handmade wraps is the image of the Buddha. I love his serene face, his gentle eyes, and the peaceful and compassionate energy that exudes from the images of him created all across the world. I love selecting different forms and artistic styles of the Buddha to use in my work to show just how universal his messages really are.

"Peace comes from within, do not seek it without"

Wearing a Buddha charm wrap is a great way to remind yourself that we create the world we live in by the things we think, and that we have the capacity to generate miracles in the world around us by taking the right action. By understanding and practicing the wisdom of Buddha, we can all cultivate a more peaceful and compassionate life for both ourselves and the entire world around us.

"It is man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways"

When looking at images of the Buddha on a charm wrap bracelet or anywhere else, it's important to try to see a little bit of yourself in him, or a little bit of him within you. The Buddha taught that we all have the ability to become Buddha - the become enlightened. His image is a reminder of that which we work towards, so we should try to be inspired and elevated every time we see his image.

"Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, man cannot live without a spiritual life"

One of the greatest reasons why I use the image of Buddha in my handmade silk wrap bracelets is that I want to have a constant reminder 'at hand' that I can be better, think better, act better, and choose to live in a world that is better at every step.

"The mind is everything. What you think you become"

I like your reasons for using Buddha in your work. We should all remember, as you say, to be better and act better.
