Theravadan Mala Beads

Post by Bag of Bones »

Greetings 🙏🏻,

I've seen pictures of some Theravadan monk in Thailand, and even Burma, occasionally having mala beads. What sort of chanting or recitation they used for in a Theravadan context?
I realize it may end up being a less than orthodox practice, but I'm just curious...preferably from someone who's had direct exposure to this practice.

Sorry. I meant for this to be posted in General Theravada, not sure how I ended up posting in sub forum 🤷🏼‍♂️
If a moderator could move it I'd appreciate it

I think there have probably been others, if you care to search.
