i have now ordered two mala prayer beads and i use them to meditate to bring my anxiety level down and to pray. i have purchased several other items from the Dharma Shop for myself and for gifts. I would highly recommend the Dharma Shop, fair trade and helping the people of tibet, india, and so on with sharing their crafts in making all the items. peace
The colour and quality of the beads is wonderful and I am already using this in meditation. It is never far from me these days as I also like to wear it, above or under my clothes. It brings me much joy and strength.
