A mala is a set of beads commonly used by Hindus and Buddhists for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. They are sacred and beautiful and can be worn as a necklace or wrapped around your wrist multiple times. Malas are made with 108 beads and aguru bead. They can be made with fewer beads, such as 18, 27, or 54, which would require the user to make several rotations to complete their full meditation. The number 108 has spiritual significance as it is believed that we have 108 lines of energy in our bodies which converge to form the anahata, or the heart chakra.
This mala is made with 6mm Yellow Jade, White Jade, Moonstone, Rose Quartz, Cloud Quartz, Dendritic Opal, Aquamarine, and Lapis Lazuli. The guru is Yellow Jade. The mala is strung with navy blue C-Lon thread and hand knotted between each stone.
