Mala beads are a set of beads that have traditionally been used in prayer and meditation. Much like worry beads they can be used to set intention and focus. So you do not need to be religious or have any spiritual practice to own Mala Beads. We believe you can wear them as a reminder of your intentions and goals for a calmer mind, body, and spirit.
These beautiful beads can be used for prayer, as decoration, as a bracelet, and as a necklace! They are made up of 108 beads that represent the 108 kinds of trouble. In traditional Buddhist thought, it is said that we have 108 afflictions. These are 6 senses (sight, sound, touch, taste, and consciousness) multiplied by 3 reactions (positive, negative or indifferent). These 108 beads can be used as a reminder of your intentions to live a mindful life.
During Japa Meditation the beads are passed through the hand to keep count of recited Mantras, they are also used on the yoga mat, as necklaces and as bracelets!
