Prayer beads or japa malas are used in many forms of Mahayana Buddhism, often with a lesser number of beads than the Hindu japa malas 108 (number)--usually a divisor of 108. In Pure Land Buddhism, for instance, 27-bead rosaries are common. Some practitioners use malas of 21 or 28 beads for doing prostrations.

"I'd like for them to say: He took a few cups of love. He took one tablespoon of patience, One teaspoon of generosity, One pint of kindness. He took one quart of laughter, One pinch of concern. And then, he mixed willingness with happiness. He added lots of faith, And he stirred it up well. Then he spread it over a span of a lifetime, And he served it to each and every deserving person he met." - Muhammad Ali

molokai, hawaii. I sailed the islands for a week or two on a 54- foot Ketch. We went from island to island. It is expensive there. The natives put up with tourists because tourism is a major industry for them. I got the distinct feeling that they wished they didn't have to. Who can blame them. Paradise!
