      In meditation, 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.

      “Meditation is the basis of a life of splendid health, untiring energy, unfailing love, and abiding wisdom. It is the very foundation of that deep inner peace for which every one of us longs. No human being can ever be satisfied by money or success or prestige or anything else the world can offer. What we are really searching for is not something that satisfies us temporarily, but a permanent state of joy.” -Eknath Easwaran

      beautiful prayer beads and finger pose... Why am I forgetting this part of my life... I've been sucked into a darkness for a couple of yrs... So hard, but yet so simple! Oh wait it's men and love and drama! Ahhh! I have no regrets though, as long as I find my place again!

    Good to know. Intuitively I do this. I never knew it was actually a mudra. "... Dhyani Mudra: In this mudra, the back of the right hand rests on the palm of the other in such a way that the tips of the thumbs lightly touch one another. The hands rest in the lap. The right hand, resting on top, symbolizes the state of enlightenment; the other hand, resting below, the world of appearance."

    Root Chakra This is the chakra you focus on while practicing Mul Bandh (Root Lock). This chakra is where security, confidence and self-esteem originate. If you are having issues with any of these in your life, then your root chakra can use some work to clear it out and open it up! Carnelian is an excellent stone to wear or meditate with for this chakra. For a matching mantra, the natural choice is the Mul Mantra (Root mantra) or Aad Guray Nameh, the mantra of protection.

    .Might have to sit on a rock for hours...or days, waiting for someone to kindly take your picture! I'm packing a lot of provisions for this photo opportunity. Looks like I'll be going on a diet (again!) for the photo shoot, too. Perhaps I can lie, and just tell everyone that's me in disguise sitting on that rock!

    I normally do this and keep what I feel I need to say to myself however there are times I just can't. I don't regret what I say I regret how I say it. I need to practice this more often and just smile and except what I can't do anything about.

    Adding a little yoga and meditation to your everyday routine can provide many benefits for a sound body/mind and can help keep you feeling balanced and focused .
