Redwood Mala with Turquoise & Glass bead
A mala or a set of mantra counting beads has 108 beads or a fraction of that number. It is important when counting mantas that the mantra be remembered with sincerity, devotion, feeling, and full attention.
HOW TO USE FOR MEDITATION
Sit comfortable with your spine straight and eyes closed. Hold your mala in your right hand draped between your middle & index fingers. Starting at the guru bead, use your thumb to count each smaller bead, pulling it toward you as you recite your mantra
