I have had Mala Beads for many years that are used in my practice
They are made out of Sandalwood and cost Â£4.00
I wouldn’tÂ´t let any Monk /Nun near these for any reason Tibetan or otherwise
Lord Buddha said We can only purify Ourselves
edit a reasonable explanation regarding Mala’s [with no blessing mentioned ] $ $ /Â£Â£ ?
