so i have begun my research...
ehow.com offers some great tips on the basics of meditating with mala beads, with the first step being to find your mala mate (read: choose your set of 108 mala beads), there really seems to be a limitless amount of options that you really have the chance to customize your meditation practice. i am now on the hunt for the right set in hopes that the simple beauty of the beads will inspire me to be diligent.
- custommalashop.com offers some less spendy options of really making your mala your own with a wide variety of options to choose from - i already spent an hour exploring the site & still have yet to decide...
- everythingyoga.com has a sandalwood necklace for only $19.99 with free shipping (when you spend $50+).
- yogabasics.com offers perhaps the most stock items at very affordable prices & are having a sale with many ranging from about $7.95 & up.
- ecrater.com offers a unique buddhist set for $14.99 with free shipping.
thoughts? does anyone have any suggestions for getting started?
