Mala Beads or Japamalas or Malas are a strand of 108 beads, a larger 109th bead often called a guru bead, and a tassel. They are a string of prayer beads commonly used in Indian religions such as Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism as a tool to aid us in meditation and in yoga practices as we count mantras in sets of 108 repetitions. Mala Beads are typically made of various seeds, woods, crystals and gemstones, which possess metaphysical healing properties that can heal our mind, body and spirit.
Mala Beads serve as a powerful reminder to us to be in the present moment and embody peace, love and compassion. And because they have great spiritual meaning, this makes them an essential part of any mindful meditation or yoga practice.
