WHY TO USE PRAYER BEADS?
Beads were originally used to assist illiterate worshippers to keep track of their prayers, allowing them to recite specific passages and verses without having to have the ability to read the texts themselves.
Furthermore, in many regions of the word, paper was a scarce commodity and the ability to actually read even less commonplace. Prayer beads served as a simplistic but high effective means by which people from varied walks of life and throughout various periods of history have been able to memorise and recite their prayers.
The global and cross-cultural nature of prater beads serve as a reminder that, at our core, people are not so different. We may have different viewpoint on a subject or lead a different lifestyle, but instead are all linked in our biology and in the fact that we all share commonalities in many aspects of our lives, whether we grow up in rural Bhutan or in New York City.
