what are mala beads

Traditionally used in mediation to repeat mantras or intentions, mala beads are an ancient tool developed to keep the mind focused and clear from thoughts while making contact with the inherent healing powers of the beads. Mala is a Sanskrit word meaning garland. It is a string of beads containing 108 counting beads and a guru bead over the tassle. The knot between each bead makes it easier to use the mala during mantra repetition.

Mala beads are used in many cultures and known by different names. Over two-thirds of the world’s population employ some type of counting beads as part of their spiritual practice.

Wearing the mala, around your neck or wrist is a simple reminder of ones intentions, while receiving a steady infusion of the healing properties associated with the specific crystals in the mala.

Each mala bead is hand-knotted with a positive mind and cleansed before postage.
