A discussion on all aspects of Theravāda Buddhism
9 posts • Page 1 of 1
I have always liked to keep something one me at all times as a reminder. I used to wear a cross on my dog tags everywhere I went, though for the past year or so I have had nothing. I have read before that some believe it to be rude/disrespectful to wear something with Buddha on it as it may become dirty. So I ask if anyone here wears anything or perhaps knows more about this subject than I do.
I am joking Densotoke...I think you mean JEWELLERY. There is no rule concerning jewellery in Buddhism unless you are a nun or monk. I know a lot of people who respect the Buddha and who wear small medallions showing the Buddha, around their necks.
Like PeterB says....there's an entire indutstry making them in Thailand and you see people wearing them all the time. The image is usually enclosed in a small glass or clear plastic enclosure I guess to keep it clean....they are worn on a chain around the neck (your neck, not the Buddha's neck!!!)
