Product Description

Introduction

Buddhist prayer beads are a traditional tool used to count the number of times a mantra is recited whilst meditating, the number of breaths whilst meditating, the number of prostrations or the number of times chanting a buddha's name. They are similar to other forms of prayer beads used in various world religions; thus some call this tool the Buddhist rosary.

 

There are numerous explanations why there are 108 beads, with the number 108 bearing special religious significance in a number of Hindu and Buddhist traditions.nAnanda Coomaraswamy holds that the numerology of the decimal numeric system was key to its inception. 108 is therefore founded in Dharmic metaphysical numerology. One for bindu; zero for shunyata and eight for ananta.

In traditional Buddhist thought, people are said to have 108 afflictions or kleshas. There are six senses (sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, and consciousness) multiplied by three reactions (positive, negative, or indifference) making 18 "feelings." Each of these feelings can be either "attached to pleasure or detached from pleasure" making 36 "passions", each of which may be manifested in the past, present, or future.[citation needed] All the combinations of all these things makes a total of 108, which are represented by the beads in the ojuzu. This same number is also used in Japanese New Year services where a bell is rung 108 times.

In addition, practitioners of Vajrayana Buddhism, use the number 108 for a different purpose. After reciting 100 mantras, eight extra mantras are done to compensate for any errors, and one full circle around the mala is counted as 100 repetitions instead of 108.[citation needed] This also serves to make counting an extremely large number of recitations easier, because one can count in hundreds instead of 108s.

This piece is specially design base on a Buddhist monk requirement with 3 lotus pattern interlock and hollow in the core which represent 'emptiness' in the Buddhist mantra.
