What is a mala?
Malas are traditionally tools of meditation. Much like a rosary, as you recite your mantra or intention, you move a bead over a finger, which can help your mind stay focused on your practice.
Today, mala beads are also popular to wear as necklaces or bracelets to serve as reminders of one’s path, purpose, or personal intention.
Malas come in different styles and number of beads. Traditionally malas are 108 beads, but smaller malas at 54 or 27 beads are also found and some traditions incorporate additional marker beads. At Ritual Gems, our malas are hand-knotted between each bead. This creates a mala that is easy to meditate with and adds an additional bit of strength to the piece, as each knot will tighten before the cord snaps.
