The Braves

The Braves collection: Each piece features 18K gold, coral and green jade; collection includes a necklace, two styles of earrings, a ring, a tiepin and a tie clip.

An air of vibrancy and elegance shines forth from each of the chilies cut from sparkling red coral, topped by a receptacle of green jade and adorned with gold on either side. The necklace features a string of nine red chilies and three finely cut triangular green jade pieces in the middle. It symbolizes a spiritual practitioner of great wisdom, love and courage who advances bravely with blessings and powers from the Nine Realms.

Realizing the inevitable moments of weakness fellow practitioners face in the mundane world, Master uses the red-hot chilies to convey God's most intense and profound love for us, in order to awaken our inner dynamic strength and firm willpower, so that we can challenge the utmost limits with unparalleled spirit and determination, without fear of snags and snares, and so that we may return to Heaven with glory.

We can be inspired by The Braves to become true brave warriors who tolerate the intolerable, achieve the unachievable, surmount negative trials and return to our glorious Home.

"Cowardice and fear have trapped us in the cycle of transmigration for a very long time."

"If we truly ask for it, if we really have the courage, longing and sincerity to ask for it, the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas (enlightened beings) of the ten directions would help us."

"Sometimes we are born in a more depressed situation because God Almighty wants us to learn the fearless spirit and the courageous lessons."

"We must be brave and be a daring person. We can't lower our heads each time and willingly surrender to every little obstacle."

"The obstacles are there for us to train ourselves. Never be afraid. Have always the courage to face the obstacles."

"You must have the courage of a mighty soul to say what is true, whether you die for it or you live with it. "

"Thinking that other people will get the benefit, we forget about our fear. This is the best way to nurture courage."

"If we keep the precepts clearly, we have no fear of wherever we are, we are peaceful at heart, and courageous. This is the true state of "free of obstacles of the heart"."

"If we are truly brave enough to forsake everything - food, clothing, abode and daily way of life, the saints and great beings will definitely take care of us. Most probably they would test us to the very last second when we are totally breathless, before they would grant us the courage."
