    An approach to Buddhism by Kalu Rinpoche

    Thich Nhat Hanh-There is a misconception that Buddhism is a religion and that you worship Buddha. Buddhism is a practice, like yoga, you can be a Christian and practice Buddhism.

    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.

    Gautama Buddha ✿ The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed. ✿ Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue. Photo : Buddha Tooth Temple - Singapore

    A #mala is a set of beads commonly used by Hindus and Buddhists, usually made from 108 beads. Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. Another use in yoga is for the teacher to keep count while leading a group through 108 Sun Salutations for an equinox or solstice celebration. The mala rosary predates the Catholic rosary, which uses fewer beads.
