The Buddha blog is about my experiences in practice, my perceptions of Buddhism and how it has shown me actual proof of its validity. As a right-brainer, I’m naturally more attracted to the more esoteric and supernatural elements of Buddhism than its history, but I’m in awe of how relevant its teachings are thousands of years since Shakyamuni roamed the Earth.
At age 2, my mission begins
Okay, I’m here. Now what?
Welcome to the Buddha Blog
Formerly Horizon newsletter
I’ve been publishing the Buddha Blog, formerly The Horizon, since 1993. It features mine and other bodhisattvas’ experiences in faith and practice, my perceptions of Buddhism, and how it has shown me actual proof of its validity as a philosophy and its insights into the true meaning of life. As a right-brainer, I’m naturally more attracted to the more esoteric and supernatural elements of Buddhism than its history, but I’m in awe of how relevant its teachings are thousands of years since Shakyamuni roamed the Earth.
My Juzu Chanting Beads
First came Buddhism, then came the chanting beads called Juzu. When, in the last century, I saw some Juzu that were handmade with gorgeous stones, I knew it would be my next creative passion. Juzu are not essential to Buddhist practice, but they are a beautiful accessory. I definitely chant longer when I’m holding a pair of sumptuous Juzu in my hands. After I figured how to make chanting beads, it was an easy expansion to wearable beads, aka jewelry. I specialize in earrings and sunglass wranglers – jewelry that keeps you from losing your sunglasses.
These are some chanting beads I’ve made over the last two decades, featuring designs and materials I use for Juzu, which include but are not limited to: Gemstones, pearls, acrylic, wood, metals, glass, chain, charms and tassels, to name some. The possibilities are endless.
Custom chanting beads are my favorite beads to make. I love the creative process and channel that love into the beads. Prices are the same as for already-made Juzu, generally ranging from $80 to $135.
