Price: $28.95


Stunning imagery is chronologically presented as the practice of the rosary in various faiths are discussed. The word bead itself has an "interfaith" origin; it comes from both the Sanskrit buddh, which refers to Self-Realization (the Buddha is the Enlightened One), and also derives from the Saxon verb bidden, to pray. The video concludes with a demonstration of how to make a rosary from rose petals.
