Buddhist Mala - Red Tigers Eye and OnyxBuddhist Mala beads are a centuries old tool to keep the mind focused on the practice of prayer and meditation. Mala are the symbol of the never ending cycle. Each bead in the mala counts a Sanskrit prayer or mantra in sets of 108 repetitions. Combining tactile and conscious awareness, the beads are moved sequentially in rhythm with breathing. Each mantra centering and stilling the mind allowing the focus to be on the meaning of the mantra rather than counting the repetitions. Each time the mantra is repeated, the fingers move to the next bead. When using a mala many times, it is believed to take on the energy of the mantra that is being recited.
