Overview

The practice of meditating with Buddhist malas has been a tradition for thousands of years. With so many people searching for spiritual expression and Buddhism being so popular, its no wonder that a rosary from a 2500 year-old religion has become the hottest trend in contemporary culture.

Dharma Beads looks beyond just the hip aspect of wearing Buddhist malas and presents a thoughtful presentation of authentic Tibetan mala traditions and customs. Whatever your spiritual tradition, you can use malas to help you create and maintain a state of quiet reflection-a cloister of the mind.

In addition to all the materials you need to create three Dharma Bead bracelets, author Joanne Arettam has written a wonderfully accessible introduction to the meanings of various types of beads as well as their spiritual meanings and benefits. She writes, "Used meditatively, these beads offer a scenic rest stop on the harried eight-lane highway of life."
Author Bio: Joanna Arettam is a painter and writer who writes widely on lifestyle, self-help, and spirituality matters. She was formerly the lifestyles editor of Glamour magazine.
