Mala is the Sanskrit word for garland. Simply being in the presence of Mala Beads is powerful. These sacred beads are commonly used in the spiritual practice of Japa Meditation. Malas have 108 beads. The beads are counted by hand while reciting, chanting, or repeating a chosen mantra or intention. They are also deeply devotional, and can be used while repeating sacred names or words like Om, Shanti, I am Love and I am Peace.
