Second Arrow Pendant

Second Arrow Pendant

88.00

Oxidized Sterling silver Oval pendant with arrow on Silver plated chain with lobster claw closure. The pendant sits at 16"

The oval is 25 x 14 mm.

This necklace was based on a talk that my husband, Josh Korda, gave at Dharma Punx NYC.

The Buddhist story of the Second Arrow is a great metaphor for the pain we apply after the fact.

In layman's words- it goes like this: When something hurts us we have the tendency to roll around in it- maybe we blog about it- write angry emails about it, stew in the outrage of "how could they!", etc. So we feel two pains- the initial pain and then the added mental pain.

"Just as if you were to shoot a man with an arrow and, right afterward, were to shoot him with another one, so that he would feel the pains of two arrows"
