About This Event
Buddhist prayer beads or malas are a traditional tool used to count the number of times a mantra is recited, breaths while meditating, counting prostrations, or the repetitions of a buddha's name.
Malas are used in Shambhala to count repetitions of phrases in the sadhanas, etc.
In this workshop you will create a finished 108-bead mala. Mala bead kits will be available for sale, or bring 108 beads of your choice. For more information, contact Toni Miller.
After making the mala, you will purify it in a lhasang, and will be taught to use it in the Shambhala Sadhana.
