I don't mind if the problem is just that it's not considered very effective - I know it's helpful for me at the moment, which seems to me a good enough reason to keep going - but if having one actually contravenes rules that I am inching towards keeping . . .

Feathers wrote:Hi! I had a read of the recent mala thread, and I don't want to reopen that whole discussion, but just wanted to check I had understood it correctly: the debate was about wearing malas, not using them, yes? I mean, if I keep a mala at home that I use to do metta, but don't wear it (currently when I'm not using it it lives on a shelf by my bed) that wouldn't be a problem even in the strictest possible interpretation of the rules?
(incidentally I'm not strict at all, or even Buddhist really yet, but I do like my mala metta practice, and would like to know it was ok to do it before developing it further)
Thanks in advance for any replies
