What are Mala Beads?
Mala beads are mysterious and magical
necklaces or meditation garlands that have
been worn for thousands of years by yogis
and spiritual seekers from all over the world.
First created in India 3000 years ago, mala beads have roots in Hinduism,
Buddhism and yoga.
The term ‘mala’ is a Sanskrit word for “meditation garland.” Originally, mala beads were used for a special style of meditation called Japa, which means, “to recite.”
During Japa meditation you repeat a mantra softly, 108 times, using your mala beads to keep track. A mantra is a word or sound repeated during mediation to help you concentrate.
The 109th stone symbolizes gratitude and our connection to the divine. It is a way to say thank-you to all the spiritual teachers who have helped us on our path to enlightenment.
