Can Prayer Beads Can Improve Your Meditative Lifestyle?

Walk into many meditation or yoga 
studios and you'll see treasure trove
of Malas, Tesbih, Tasbih, Prayer Beads, Misbaha made of all kinds of gems, 
crystals & many other healing stones.
These prayer beads are at core a
mechanical tool for counting off 
set number of prayers, said John Kieschnick, 
president of the department of religious 
studies and professor at Stanford University
in Buddhist studies.
Technology has inaugurated the 
era of digital rosary and mala 
applications, but for many, it is 
the tactile encounter with analogue 
beads that enriches spiritual practise. 

Go figure, your iPhone is not always the 
best link you have with God.
Many religions, including Buddhists, 
Muslims and Christians, or anyone else 
who is looking for ways to mark off and keep 
track of prayers, or meditative practise, can 
use prayer beads. 
“I think the tactile quality of the beads is a big
part of the attraction,” Kieschnick said. “They can calm the psyche and concentrate the mind.”
The elegance of prayer beads is often 
seductive to many. Some wear ajewellery.
