The symbol of the never ending cycle, each bead in the mala counts a Sanskrit prayer or mantra, in sets of 108 repetitions.
How to use mala beads? Combining tactile and conscious awareness, the beads are moved sequentially in rhythm with breathing. Rather than focus on counting the repetitions, the practitioner uses the beads, one for each mantra for a total of 108.
Our traditional Japa Mala contains 108 beads. The refreshing aroma of sandalwood is considered auspicious for all spiritual practices. Sandalwood is said to purify negative energy and attract positive energy.
This Mala necklace is hand strung with 8mm beads. A free mala bag included to store and protect your beads. Due to the natural wood beads used, colors may vary slightly.
