• Ox Bone Carved Skull Beads Buddhist Prayer Wrist Mala Bracelet

  • Beads are among the earliest human ornaments and ostrich shell beads in Africa date to 10,000 BC.Over the centuries various cultures have made beads from a variety of materials from stone and shells to clay. The English word bead derives from the Old English noun bede which means a prayer. The exact origins of prayer beads remain uncertain, but their earliest use probably traces to Hindu prayers in India. Buddhism probably borrowed the concept from Hinduism. The statute of a holy Hindu man with beads dates to the 3rd century BC. Although the use of prayer beads grew within those religions, it did not enter Judaism, perhaps because of its association with other religions, and to date Judaism does not use prayer beads. Although not used as counting device, many Jews touch the knots on the tzitzits attached to their tallit (prayer shawl) at specific points in their prayers.
