A Mala is a string of beads used to count mantras (Sanskrit prayers) in sets of 108 repetitions.
A mantra is a word or series of words or prayer chanted aloud or silently to invoke spiritual qualities. Chanting is used as a spiritual tool in virtually every cultural and religious tradition. In the yogic tradition a mantra is a Sanskrit word that has special powers to transform consciousness, promote healing or fulfil desires. The practice of chanting a mantra is used as a form of meditation. Sitting in a comfortable position, with the eyes closed, the mantra is repeated silently or aloud. The mind is focused on the mantra, the thoughts are let go of and the breath is slow and deep.To use the mala beads hold in your right hand and use your thumb to “count” each mantra by touching the bead during the recitation and then lightly pushing the bead away on completion and moving to the next bead. Our mala beads are made from semi precious crystals corresponding to each chakra or energy system of the body and self.
