A mala is a 108 beads necklace that means « garland of flower » in sanskrit and have been used for thousands of years by Hinduists and Buddhists. Malas serve as a counting device during meditation to keep track of the number of mantras to repeat: one mantra or affirmation per bead. It also serves as a physical cue to stay in the present time: as fingers slide from bead to bead and the mind starts to wander, the mala will be there to gently guide your attention back to the sound of the mantra. In a sense, mala is a fantastic friend, an help to let go of your thoughts. As you invest all those positives vibes in this object that accompanies you through these peaceful moments, it will support you in your journey to get free of your often hyperactive mental.
