Here is a question that just popped into my head. Do you think homemade pendants (or anything homemade for that matter) will have the same benefits as ones that are purchased. What I mean is Tsem tulku Rinpoche mentions in his video on prostrations that " The benefits of pendants are:
blesses you and others (see the buddha)
protected (by whatever the person is wearing)
Do you think that it also includes homemade ones?
Yes it does because a Buddha's form itself can benefit people.
