Second Arrow Ring

Second Arrow Ring


Oxidized Sterling silver signet ring with arrow icon.

The oval is 25 x 14 mm. Great for guys or ladies. Available in sizes 7,8,9,10. Please indicate size when you order.

These rings were 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"

The ring has a worn, urban-vintage style- and work great for girls and guys alike. Josh wears his on his pinky- but that is only because he couldn't wait for one his size.
