The string holding my largely-unworn mala beads together broke. I had my wife re-string them, but I don’t think there are 108 beads any longer. Does this mean I’m less of a yogi? Does it mean I’m going to yoga purgatory? Does it mean I’m bad-ass, without going all the way and getting a tattoo? Or does it mean it’s still gonna hang on my belt rack (all three belts, two black, one brown) unused for another slice of eternity? Got an answer? Talk to me….
