Can I use a Buddhist necklace (Japamala I think the name is) just to wear?

Is this disrespectful? I'm not Buddhist but I find these necklaces very beautiful and I'd like to have some

Japamalas. What's your experience with it

I recently bought a Japamala of Saint Archangel Miguel from a Rosacrucian Frater and I would like to know if I could use it somedays and go to downtown or somewhere else. In streets I always feel in panic and also recently happened too much things to me there, like I was robbed and thought I was going to die in the hands of the bandits, and everyday someone strange appears and approaches to me asking me money or food or information and I get very scared.

Where to buy a japamala/buddhist rosary.

So, my mom wants me to buy her a japamala/buddhist rosary, never heard of them till she asked but now I'm searching temples for them and couldn't find them. Anyone know where to find them? Thanks ahead of time.

Japamala (mala) in Buddhism

Iโ€™m a little more familiar with the use of mala from a Vedic perspective and Hindu tradition (mantra yoga) and have been wanting to get some clarity on differences and similarities in how a practice with mala is approached in the various Buddhist lineages.

Vedic and Hindu teaching and practices are often very specific about a lot of minute details and rules that apply to practice, in this case the use of mala. Iโ€™ve spoken with a few people and have read reference to Buddhist use being less restrictive and prescriptive from the perspective that Buddhism teaches non-attachment and the view that the mala is a tool therefore overly defined rules/steps/specifications would be opposite the point of non-attachment. From that perspective, here are a few questions for those who practice with mala:

In Buddhist practice:

  1. Does the material the mala is made out of matter and have specific symbolic and purpose-based meaning and value? For example, would rudraksha beads have a different purpose or application compared to sandlewood or crystal, etc.?

  2. Can mala be used straight away or is some form of consecration required before the mala is ready to be used?

  3. Can a mala be used more than once or is there the belief that a new mala should be used every time one starts a new sadhana with a new mantra?

  4. If a mala can be used for more than a single mantra, can multiple mantras be practiced on the same mala concurrently?

  5. If a mala can be used more than once but not concurrently with more than one mantra, does the mala require a cleansing practice before beginning the new sadhana?

  6. Are there specifics rules for how a mala is handled i.e. right or left hand, index finger allowed, rolling beads or just counting, etc.

Iโ€™ve been curious about all of this for a while so very much appreciate your responses.

Thank you for Armok Vision, u/JapaMala.

#You can check out Armok Vision here.


Hey guys, I'm a new subscriber. I hope you don't mind my first post being about another user, u/JapaMala. I'm sure a few of you are familiar with him. He occasionally posts updates here.

I'm a millennial who grew up on games like X-Wing vs Tie Fighter, Mechwarrior, and Deus Ex. I've had the privilege of gaming on 3-D graphics for all of my life. Needless to say, I struggle to cope with the spartan aesthetics of a game like Dwarf Fortress, but I also struggle to resist the depth of Dwarf Fortress. It offers an almost frightening (and borderline occult) level of mystery and potential. The Hall of Legends stands as testament to this claim.

For those not familiar with him, I learned about u/JapaMala when he was developing IsoWorld (an isometric DF map viewer) in 2010. Although I don't believe he's worked on IsoWorld since 2015, this guy has been contributing to another popular 3-D viewer, Stonesense, since at least 2012. These days he's working on a Unity based viewer called Armok Vision, and that's been his project since 2014. The bottom line is that he has been passionately working to make DF more accessible to the community (and normies like me) for at least 7 years.

Tilesets like Phoebus' make DF a LOT more pleasing to the eye, but a proper 3-D interface would put DF in another league. I sincerely believe community growth would explode if DF went from this to this (Granted, there is room for sprite improvement). Although it's just a viewer now, Japa has reached out to users for direction on whether or not to develop Armok Vision as a fully featured medium to play DF.


The main reason that I am posting here today is because I noticed that he seemed lose half of his Patreon support two days ago. His support dropped from roughly $167/month to $77/month overnight, and I believe he relies on that support for development (which he's been very reliable about). I don't think he's made a comment on the matter, but I would like to. Perhaps I'm ill informed and he did something to deserve that kind of loss, bu

SERIOUS: This subreddit needs to understand what a "dad joke" really means.

I don't want to step on anybody's toes here, but the amount of non-dad jokes here in this subreddit really annoys me. First of all, dad jokes CAN be NSFW, it clearly says so in the sub rules. Secondly, it doesn't automatically make it a dad joke if it's from a conversation between you and your child. Most importantly, the jokes that your CHILDREN tell YOU are not dad jokes. The point of a dad joke is that it's so cheesy only a dad who's trying to be funny would make such a joke. That's it. They are stupid plays on words, lame puns and so on. There has to be a clever pun or wordplay for it to be considered a dad joke.

Again, to all the fellow dads, I apologise if I'm sounding too harsh. But I just needed to get it off my chest.

Just because it's a joke, doesn't mean it's a dad joke

Alot of great jokes get posted here! However just because you have a joke, doesn't mean it's a dad joke.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT NSFW, THIS IS ABOUT LONG JOKES, BLONDE JOKES, SEXUAL JOKES, KNOCK KNOCK JOKES, POLITICAL JOKES, ETC BEING POSTED IN A DAD JOKE SUB

Try telling these sexual jokes that get posted here, to your kid and see how your spouse likes it.. if that goes well, Try telling one of your friends kid about your sex life being like Coca cola, first it was normal, than light and now zero , and see if the parents are OK with you telling their kid the "dad joke"

I'm not even referencing the NSFW, I'm saying Dad jokes are corny, and sometimes painful, not sexual

So check out r/jokes for all types of jokes

r/unclejokes for dirty jokes

r/3amjokes for real weird and alot of OC

r/cleandadjokes If your really sick of seeing not dad jokes in r/dadjokes

Punchline !

Edit: this is not a post about NSFW , This is about jokes, knock knock jokes, blonde jokes, political jokes etc being posted in a dad joke sub

Edit 2: don't touch the thermostat

Ants donโ€™t even have the concept fathers, let alone a good dad joke. Keep r/ants out of my r/dadjokes.

But no, seriously. I understand rule 7 is great to have intelligent discussion, but sometimes it feels like 1 in 10 posts here is someone getting upset about the jokes on this sub. Let the mods deal with it, they regulate the sub.
