What is the point of wearing Bodhi? Although it is used as a cultivation prop rather than an ornament to beautify the appearance, after wearing it, it will indeed make others feel a sense of peace.
However, there are often people who worry about not wearing it properly, whether there will be trouble with the law. In fact, as long as you master a few principles, wearing it is not troublesome.
The wearing position of the Buddha beads is generally worn on the wrist, because it is easy to use, and it can always remind yourself to take care of the body, mouth and mind. In addition, people who buy for the first time often worry that after the purchase, can they be worn directly, or do they need to go through a religious ceremony similar to consecration? The main purpose of use is to help practice, so there is no need to worry about too many taboos, and it can be worn directly on the hand after the purchase. Some people also hope to use it as a practice magic tool after receiving the blessing of the master. It is indeed a great blessing to have the opportunity to get close to the master and get the blessing of the master.
However, the best way to bless is to work hard and take care of yourself, which can be used to benefit in daily life.
As for the place of use and the time of recitation, there are no special rules, and it can be worn 24 hours a day. For example, you can still recite the Buddha’s name in your mind when you go to the toilet, so you don’t need to take it off. No matter when and where you are, you can use the Buddha recitation with confidence. Therefore, it is the most convenient practice instrument for Buddhists to use.
Both men and women can wear it. As for how many to wear, there is generally no specific rule. Wearing should be mainly practical, not for extravagance and nobility. However, it is generally believed that wearing Bodhi seed beads is the greatest merit. Because my master Shakyamuni Buddha became enlightened under the Bodhi tree.
The Bodhi rosary is the magic weapon of Buddhist practitioners. It is the symbol of almost every Buddhist while reciting a mantra and stroking the beads. No matter what the occasion, the environment is noisy or not, as long as the practitioner touches the beads, the mind will immediately calm down. There are many beads, 21, 54, 108 and so on. It is up to you to decide how many beads you like to wear, and there is no specific attention. There are also many types of materials to choose from, the most common one is made of Bodhi seeds. The Bodhi rosary is very precious and is also the first choice for those who chant Buddha.
Bodhi rosaries are very precious, and there is no specific attention to wearing them. Whether they are worn on the neck or on the wrist, they are all for practice. As long as you buy them back, you don’t need to do anything, you can wear them directly on your neck and wrist, and you don’t need to demagnetize them like crystals. As long as you chant Buddha with peace of mind every day and stroke the Bodhi rosary, it is the best way to maintain the Bodhi rosary. To say that it is really exquisite, it is how to touch the Bodhi rosary when chanting the Buddha. The so-called rosary is to use the thumb of the right hand and the fingertip of the index finger to recite it gently, counting the beads while reciting. When counting the Bodhi rosary, you can’t go over the biggest The bead, every time you reach the largest one, you have to start over.
When the Bodhi seed beads are controlled, they don’t actually pay much attention. When wearing them, everyone only needs to pay attention to the mother beads of the beads, which is what we say as the “three links”, so as to better demonstrate the solemnity of “returning to the sect of all dharmas”. Holding the Bodhi seed beads is a kind of self-cultivation activity. It is more about relaxing one’s body and mind and regulating one’s emotions. There is no need to be bound by some deliberate rules, which also violates the original meaning of Buddhism.
There is basically only one important precaution for wearing Buddha beads and Bodhi, which is purity. Do not soak in water. Buddhism says that there are no taboos in wearing Bodhi.
