The Buddhi earring is made in the shape of the leaves of the "Ficus religiosa" tree. This is the tree under which the prince Siddhartha Gautama reached awakening, the understanding of what is the source of all suffering.
The word Buddhi was mistakenly translated to “enlightenment” although its true meaning is ‘awakening’ or ‘awareness’. The use of the term ‘enlightenment’ leads to a basic miscomprehension of the Buddhi state, which often leads one to relate to enlightenment as something supreme, as something beyond... and therefore unattainable. Actually, the Buddhi state is simply a state of consciousness, an awakening characterized by a lack of illusionary thoughts.
The Buddhi earring reminds the wearer of the possibility of being compassionate and modest, two qualities that are essential to the awakening process.
