One day when P'ang layman (740-808)was selling bamboo baskets at the market place of Hung-chou. Seeing a monk begging alms, he took out a cash and said:
-Can you tell me how to appreciate alms?
The monk had nothing to say.

Hi I'm new to Zen Buddhism and look forward to my journey ahead. This question may seem ignorant if not irrelevant. However, I wanted to buy a wrist mala (and then buy 108 bead mala later) to cite my mantras and I was wondering how might I go about picking out a material and the mantras to go with that specific material?
