The term mala is derived from the Sanskrit word “JJapmala,” which is a string of beads used for prayer and meditation by Hindus and Buddhists (similar to the concept of a Rosary in the Catholic faith). The string is made up of 108 individual beads, which are used to keep count while chanting or repeating a mantra while meditating.
Malas can be worn or kept on your altar or meditation space.
Mala beads can be made of crystals, lava stones or wood. Those made of crystal can also assist with the energy of the stone.
