Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity.  In Tibetan Buddhism, malas of 108 beads are used and are mainly used to count mantras. These mantras can be recited for different purposes linked to working with mind. The material used to make the beads can vary according to the purpose of the mantras used. Every gemstone is said to have different properties, energies, and meaning.

How to use Mala Beads

  • Sit comfortably in your favorite meditation spot with your spine straight and your eyes closed. Take a few deep breaths to center and align yourself with your intention.
  • If you have one, use a mantra for this practice, chanting aloud or silently.
  • Hold your mala in your right hand, draped between your middle and index fingers. Starting at the guru bead, use your thumb to count each smaller bead, pulling it toward you as you recite your mantra. Do this 108 times, traveling around the mala, until you once again reach the guru bead.
  • If you want to continue the meditation, instead of passing over the guru bead, simply reverse direction and begin again.
