Malas are an important tool to strengthen and maintain mindfulness, and often signify a new practitioners first steps on their dharma path. The practice of mantra recitation has been used for centuries to help focus the mind, bring calmness, and to gain wisdom and purification. In Sanskrit, the word mala simply means necklace or garland, and refers to a string of beads used for prayer.
Our mala necklaces are hand crafted by artisans in Nepal, using quality mala woods, bodhi seeds and healing gemstones. Select a mala that complements your personal energy, and over time your mala will be imbued with the positive intent and mindfulness you build through using it. They make a beautiful and personal gift, and can also be blessed by a teacher or spiritual leader.
