what are Mala beads...
A Mala is simply a string of beads that are used in a meditation practice
Malas can be made of many materials, gemstones, rudraksha seeds and sandalwood
Traditionally malas, or garlands of prayer beads, come as a string of 108 beads (plus one for the "guru bead," around which the other 108 beads turn like the planets around the sun) you hold your mala in your right hand, draped between your middle and index fingers. Starting at the guru bead, use your thumb to count each smaller bead, pulling it toward you as you recite your mantra.
Do this 108 times, traveling around the mala, until you once again reach the guru bead These bracelets are worn on your right wrist
Mala beads make a great tool to achieve peace of mind. It serves as a guide in reciting mantras during meditation; meditation positively affects the mood, encourages optimistic thoughts, and ultimately, leads people to achieve inner peace.
Mala beads are fabulous for keeping count as you meditate and repeat your mantra. I’m sure we don’t have to tell you about all the wonderful benefits of meditation, but people who don’t meditate are wearing them too. It’s totally awesome. In fact, mala is the Sanskrit word for “garland.”
