The sacred bead is a tool used by Buddhists to count and hold their hearts when they are chanting Buddhism. Now, many people who like fashion or show their personality also wear a string of beads, but most people certainly don't know that the meaning of different numbers of beads is different. First of all, not all jewellery bracelets are 18 or 108. How many jewellery bracelets generally have different meanings. In general, the number of bead bracelets worn by everyone for decoration is 12, 13, or 16 depending on the thickness of the wrists of men and women. As long as it is not used as a rosary, how many can be worn. If used as a rosary, there are 14, 18, 21, 27, 36, 42, 54, 108, and 1080 bead bracelets. In addition, because all thoughts and thoughts are to be cleared when praying to the Buddha, the rosary (Buddhism bracelet) is also called "Qingxin Bead". The number of beads and rosary bracelets and their meanings are too much to learn. There are some sayings about how many beads a bracelet has, not just to wear them casually. Since there are rules, it is better to follow the rules. One hundred and eight: The most common number is to prove one hundred and eighty-two ambiguous, and to remove one hundred and eight kinds of troubles, so that the body and mind can reach a quiet state. One thousand and eighty pieces: It means that there are 108 types of troubles in each of the ten realms, and one hundred and eighty types of troubles are combined. "Ten Realms" means the whole world of mystery and enlightenment, which can be divided into ten categories. Fifty-four: Represents fifty-four ranks in the process of bodhisattva, including ten faiths, ten residences, ten rows, ten retreats, ten places and fifty ranks, plus four sense roots. Forty-two: Forty-two ranks representing the process of the Buddha's practice, that is, ten dwellings, ten lines, ten reversals, ten places, equal consciousness and wonderful consciousness. Thirty-six: Without exact meaning, it is generally considered to be for carrying, so one hundred and thirty points are thirty-six. It contains the doctrine of seeing the big, so it is the same as 108. Twenty-seven: Twenty-seven sages representing the practice of the Four Directions of theravada, namely the "eighteen studies" of the first four directions and the three results of the nine fruits of the fourth Arahantuo. Twenty-one: It means ten places, ten jackfruits, and Buddha fruit. The "Fruit fruit" refers to the fruit position that reaches the end of Buddhahood. Eighteen: Commonly known as "eighteen sons", the so-called "eighteen" refers to the "eighteen circles", that is, six roots, six dusts, and six consciousnesses. Fourteen: Denotes that Guanyin Bodhisattva shares the same condolences with all beings such as Shifang, III, and Liu Dao, and enables all beings to obtain fourteen fearless merits.
