108 Natural Stone Beaded Mala Bracelets with Lotus Charm - 18 Color Options
Mala Beads are more than just beautiful adornment, Malas are powerful and symbolic tools for meditation. The number 108 has long been considered a sacred number in Hinduism. The number 1 stands for God, the universe or your own highest truth; 0 stands for emptiness and humility in spiritual practice; and 8 stands for infinity and timelessness. It offers people a wearable reflection of something in their own journey, so in that way the mala really becomes whatever the wearer intends for it.
How do you use Mala Beads for meditation?
- Choose a spot and sit comfortably with your spine straight and your eyes closed. Take a few deep breaths to center and align yourself with your intention.
- If you have one, use a mantra for this practice, chanting aloud or silently.
- Hold your mala in your right 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 continue the meditation, instead of passing over the guru bead, simply reverse direction and begin again.
This Mala bracelet comes in 18 stone color variations, each with different meanings and significance. Namaste!
