108 Mala beads, red sandalwood

Regular price $1.99

Mala necklaces are strands of 108 beads—typically stones, crystals, sandalwood, or rudraksha beads that carry certain energy—traditionally used during japa meditation, where a mantra is quietly repeated 108 times.

Wearing the mala as a necklace or as a bracelet throughout the day helps you manifest the power of the stone. And much like a rosary, the beads help the practitioner keep track of their place as they move through a meditation practice with the beads in between their thumb and forefinger (never letting the beads touch the middle finger, a sign of disrespect). At the last bead, it is customary to give gratitude to teachers and the most important people in your life.
