The 108 Bead Mala

Mala beads are used in meditation, mindfulness practices and yoga to focus ones thoughts on specific mantras, good intentions, or prayers. The traditional mala is made with 108 beads plus  1 guru bead above the tassel or totem – the number 108 represents the number of worldly desires that must be overcome before reaching enlightenment.

 

The mala makes for a beautiful peace of jewelry but it can also be a great tool for everyday mindfulness. During practice, move each bead between your fingers as you recite your mantra again and again as each bead passes through your fingers. Throughout the day, use it to help bring your mind back to the present moment anytime you find yourself caught up in a specific thought or feeling.
