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 6mm Red Creek Jasper beads and a Purple Artistic Jasper guru pendant. Jasper is a highly supportive stone. It provides strength and stability and supports the Root Chakra. The mala is strung on nylon thread which is knotted between each stone.
*Each mala is made by hand and will have unique characteristics. Rest assured that your mala will be created with love and great attention to detail.*
