The practice of mantra recitation has been used for centuries to help focus the mind, bring calmness, and to gain wisdom and purification. They make a beautiful and personal gift, and can also be blessed by a teacher or spiritual leader.
Strung with 108 beads, wooden malas are most commonly used among the monks and nuns as they are relatively light and hard-wearing for many hours spent in meditation. At every 27th bead is an extra 'spacer' bead to provide a gentle reminder to re-focus when we find our mind trailing during meditation. The bead size is 8mm.
To motivate your practice and inspire mantra recitation, consider adding a mala marker.
When not using your mala, it is good to keep it in a safe place and always treat it with respect. Our mala bags will ensure protection from the elements and will extend the life of your mala.
