Mala Beads

The word 'mala', in Sanskrit, means necklace or garland. Malas are simply a string of beads used in the meditation practice; a tool to help you count mantras. Traditionally they have 108 beads and one guru bead, which is larger than the rest. Working with mala beads and repeating the mantra of your choice can help you redirect the mind from daily obsessions, interruptions, and troubles, and introduce peace of mind and positive thinking.
