Buddhist Prayer Beads
We carry Mala Bracelets or Wrist Malas, as well as the 108 Bead Mala Necklace which are traditional as a Buddhist Mala. Our mala necklaces are typically sold with a mala tassle and "guru bead". We also carry Mala Counters and Mala Bags. Mala beads for meditation are used to keep count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra. Mantras (the word literally means "mind protection") can be recited for different purposes linked to working with mind. The mala rosary is used so that one can focus on the meaning or sound of the mantra rather than counting its repetitions.
Traditional Tibetan Buddhist malas have 108 beads. The material used as the beads can vary. You can choose from a variety of crystal, rudraksha, wood, stone, and seed malas.
Our selection of Malas is imported from Japan, Nepal and Thailand.
