When picking out jewelry, going with what you like is always best. I have some very unique pieces that were also beneficial to me. That brings me to this review. Mala beads. When I was offered the mala beads from Rudraksha, I was curious, to say the least. I had questions and wanted to know more.


What is the purpose of mala beads?

They are rooted in Hinduism and Buddhism and are meant to help you focus your mind during meditation. Mala beads traditionally have 108 beads. The largest bead, in the center, is known as the guru. It is said to hold the energy generated during your practice. There are always 108 beads on malas.

How are mala beads used?

The mala is held with gentleness and respect, generally in the left hand. To use your mala, hold it with your left hand and begin to recite from the guru bead, clockwise around the mala, using your thumb to move the beads. Count one bead for each recitation of the mantra.

What is a Mantra?

Originally in Hinduism and Buddhism, a word or sound is repeated to aid concentration in meditation.
An example of a personal mantra is:

I am healthy, I am stable, I am sound.
My body is in excellent shape and my mind is at ease. I am healing myself. I accept my flaws and embrace the totality of who I am. I am perfect just the way I am.

How many beads are on a mala

Malas always have 108 Beads. There are also variations of malas like pocket malas or mala bracelets and they may have 27 beads or 54 beads, or any multiple of 9, as 9 is a sacred number in Yoga. The Wrist Bodhi Mala has 27 beads plus the anchor.
