Prayer Beads???

Post  AgathonZante on Fri Oct 16, 2015 12:07 pm

I've noticed some Hellenists and modern Pagans incorporating the use of prayer beads into their practice. I know that the Christians don't have a patent on prayer beads, because I think Eastern religions use them as well. But could a Hellenist use them, and if so, in what way?

Indeed, the oldest prayer beads are probably Indian: see Wikipedia. The basic question is whether you find repeating a mantra a great number of times to be a useful exercise. If you do, making a set of beads will be useful.

Yea, I suppose. One could find such a mantra in Hellenism I am sure, but the problem is that there are so many useful ones that it'd be hard to really stick to one kind of theme or focus.
