A mala is a set of beads commonly used by Hindus and Buddhists for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. They are sacred and beautiful and can be worn as a necklace or wrapped around your wrist multiple times. Malas are made with 108 beads and a guru bead. They can be made with fewer beads, such as 18, 27, or 54, which would require the user to make several rotations to complete their full meditation. The number 108 has spiritual significance as it is believed that we have 108 lines of energy in our bodies which converge to form the anahata, or the heart chakra.
This mala is made with 8mm wood beads and rose quartz. The guru bead is fancy Jasper - the colors match perfectly with the smaller beads. The tassel is pink.
***Every mala is unique and made after an order has been placed. Yours will look very similar to the one pictured but will not be exact. This makes your piece of one a kind and meant just for you. Turn around time for malas is usually 3 days.**
