Traditionally, Tibetans use the prayer box as a portable shrine where prayers and sacred relics are kept, thus, having their prayers close to their heart. More recently, and outside of Tibet, "prayer box" pendants are often worn as jewelry or personal adornment. A prayer can be placed in the box or prayers can be said over the box when needed. I do this because I feel like my prayers are always changing.
