Buddhist Malas & Wrist Malas

Here you can find our buddhist mala collection. Mala beads are a set of beads that have traditionally been used in prayer and meditation.

Mala beads are a strand of 108 beads used for keeping count during mantra meditations. It can also be made of 27 beads or 21 beads for use in shorter meditation or count the hundreds (circles) of mantras we make on the other hand. Malas are always made with round beads. These beads are usually 7-8mm in size or 10mm, and their shape allows them glide easily through your fingers. Traditional ones are made with Rudraksha beads, lotus seed beads, yak bone, Bodhi seeds, or wood.

If you buy your own one in order to support your practise we suggest to choose one with larger beads as it is easier to count with them your mantras.

How to use a mala?

Hold it in your hand, draped between your middle and index fingers. Starting at the guru bead, use your thumb to count each smaller bead, pulling it toward you as you recite your mantra. Do this 108 times, traveling around the mala, until you once again reach the guru bead.

If you want to make more than one circle on it, instead of passing over the guru bead, simply reverse direction and begin again.
