Each Mala contains 108 genuine gemstone beads. Mala beads were traditionally created to be used as a tool in meditation. According to the Hindu tradition, the Vedas recognize 108 authentic teachings aimed at realization of the absolute truth and discovering our place in the universe. Each Mala strand is ethically produced and mantras for auspiciousness are chanted while the beads are knotted. We pray that meditating on these Malas helps you in your spiritual sojourn.
