What are malas?
Malas are a tool and an aid to help deepen meditation, mindful and spiritual practices through the repetition of sacred sounds. Each mala comes strung with 108 beads plus the guru bead located where the tassel is. You will repeat your mantra, affirmation or sacred sound while rotating the mala through your fingers one bead at a time. 108 is a particularly auspicious number and 108 repetitions of your sacred sound or affirmation will bring your mind and body peaceful and calming effects.
Like all malas, this Bolanath mala is an aid to repetition of the holy name; it brings a sense of calm and well being by helping us center our thoughts on peace.
