Question:  I notice you rub your beads often. What is the significance of that?

RH:  It's just a bad habit. There's no deep meaning to my rubbing of the beads. It's
just my habit. Definitely rubbing the beads fiercely, forcefully or excessively is
something we should not do.  Do not place the beads up towards your mouth
because it echoes. The correct posture is to place your hands together in front of
your chest. Rubbing the beads just a little is okay, but it has no meaning.
