In this note we study the moduli space of minimal Legendrian submanifolds in the standard sphere. We suggest to find new examples by solving a certain equation for a function on a nearby glued Legendrian submanifolds, or by deforming glued Legendrian submanifolds along a volume decreasing flow. A new neccesary condition for a Lagrangian embedding into formula3 is given.
