Harmony Beads

Staff News

Prayer beads have long been valued in sacred traditions which have prescribed a specific number of recitations of prayers. The prayer beads have been used as a counting aid for these sacred numbers of spiritual invocations. However, the function of the prayer bead is not just that of a count; it is also to become identified with the spiritual value of the prayers themselves, so that the prayer bead can be viewed as a means of arriving at the goal of prayers.

Prayer beads can be found in various religious traditions: Muslims know them as misbaha, Hindus and Buddhists as japa mala, and Roman Catholics as rosaries. The essential purpose of praying and meditating with beads is to enable inner integration of mind and heart. As the beads move through one’s fingers, keeping track of the number of prayers or mantras being said, full spiritual consciousness is devoted to those meditations Prayer beads thus have physical, psychological and metaphysical effects on the people who use them. They can even be used in a secular context as ‘worry beads’ to relieve stress due to their calming effect.

Our Harmony Beads are hand-made from the Holy Land’s finest olivewood. They are also sustainably harvested and locally sourced.
