What is a mala?
Mala necklaces are a beautiful string of beads, often gemstones, that are traditionally worn to assist with meditation. They are also worn as a unique piece of jewellery that also serves as a gentle reminder of your daily focus or intention. For thousands of years mala necklaces have been used by Buddhists and Hindus during prayer and meditation. Men and women all over the world now wear malas for meditation, mindfulness and yoga practice. With each bead a mantra or prayer is repeated to a total of 108 times. In yoga, 108 salutations to the sun can be counted with the beads on a mala.
The types of gemstones used in the mala each hold a particular significance. Many people like to select their necklace according to the properties of the gemstones.
