Necklaces – Malas (Misc.)

PRAYER BEADS/MALAS: Mala Beads (Sanskrit for “garland”) are a string of beads that are traditionally used for counting mantras/affirmations in prayer and meditation. They are also a beautiful reminder of our intentions and to bring greater happiness, joy, loving kindness, and serenity into the world. A full mala usually contains 108 beads (but can vary) plus one guru (teacher) or center bead. A mala may be worn as a necklace, bracelet, or simply displayed beautifully on your altar or sacred space in your home. The center bead is often larger than the other counting mantra beads as it provides a starting and ending point for counting the repetitions of the mantra. A tassel is connected to the end of the center bead to complete the mala. Choose your Mala to symbolize the strength of your intention and manifest the energy you desire as your new way of being. Our sacred Mantra Collection is handcrafted with love (each bead is individually & hand-knotted), prayed over, & blessed by our beloved Nepalese friends. See CRYSTAL MEANINGS to learn more about the type of crystals in your Malas.
