Prayer and mantra practice has been used as a powerful tool for centuries to calm, regroup, heal and spiritually evolve into our best selves. Typically, the beads or mala is held in your left hand or right hand. Each bead is touched or held as you recite a prayer or mantra. A traditional mala has 108 beads with a ‘guru bead’, there are marker beads that are not counted and only divide the mala into quadrants.
Due to each mala being handmade and the nature of gemstones each mala will vary slightly. Properties of stones are legend and belief are not meant to be medical treatments. Although each mala comes with a suggested mantra, they are just suggestions, ultimately, you are the only one who knows the mantra you need to repeat.
