Hi Everyone,

I have a question that is probably going to sound very stupid, but I have to ask it anyway. Recently in the media/movies I have seen a lot of characters/people whom are buddhists, and they all (well there are always exceptions) are wearing a string of wooden beads around their left wrist. These beads have a kind of rosary type appearance, and well I was wondering what the significance of these beads was? If any?

If anyone can help my I would be very grateful, as I am just a solitary searcher, and unable to speak in person to someone more knowledgable. But I'm sure the accumulated wisdom of this page will be able to help.

Thankfully Yours,
Shane
