Buddhists and Hindus both use prayer beads. In Hinduism they are more commonly known as Japa, and in Buddhism they are more commonly known as Mala. There are usually 108 beads and a top bead known as the Guru Bead or Sumeru. Smaller numbers of beads can also be used and are usually known as Wrist Mala or Power Bead Bracelets because they are worn around the wrist, which is useful if you are travelling.
More than just beautiful adornment, malas are powerful and symbolic tools for meditation as crystals balance all the energy chakras while chanting mantras during meditation. The Beads are usually held and moved between the thumb and third finger until the mantras have been completed. When you reach the Guru Bead or Sumeru, you turn the beads around and go back the other way, rather than crossing over the top bead. The index finger never touches the beads because it represents Ego, which is an impediment to self-realization.
Why 108 beads? There are many reasons – 108 is a sacred number to the Eastern religions and traditions.
Each Bead is mindfully knotted with love, one at a time on a durable nylon silk cord for extra strength and durability. This Mala features all 108 beads divided by markers into sections of beads that follow selected pattern and finished with a Silk Tassel. The tassel symbolizes consciousness and oneness.
They can be worn as a necklace or a bracelet throughout the day as a reminder to be mindful or as a reminder for a personal mantra connected to the type of bead or stone the necklace is made from.
This item would make the perfect gift for a loved friend, family member, or for yourself. Whether you are buying one stone to always be with you in your pocket or multiple for your collection, they are sure to bring positive energy to your life.
