Re: Prostration Counting
- Ahh, excellent! thank you Joyce!
I tried counting with the mala but the beads are strung together very
tightly... and if i'm to move one over, i lose track of where the last
bead was. on top of that i have no clue how to hold the mala and
prostrate at the same time, so either way it didn't exactly jive.
very often i think the buddhas are having a quiet laugh over my goofy
prostrations and horrific pronunciation. =P
