What is a Mala?

Malas have been used for millennia as a meditation tool. A traditional mala is 108 beads plus a guru bead, usually strung on silk. The 108 repetitions is often used as a sacred number. The guru bead is meant to represent the 1,000 petal lotus.

Here we make malas to adorn you and serve as a reminder throughout the day of the inner peace and wholeness which resides in you always. While some of our malas can be used for counting meditation, they are mostly designed to look and feel beautiful on you. The crystals and mantra create a powerful energetic effect which serves to support and elevate you all day, not just in meditation.
