Malas are sets of prayer beads that are used to keep your mind spiritually focused while reciting or mentally repeating a mantra. Mala is an ancient Sanskrit term meaning “garland”. Malas are the traditional and spiritual tools of the Buddhist and Hindu religions. The strings of beads are worn over the hand or in the hand so that each bead can be counted as each prayer is recited. It is also a wonderful accessory in meditation or as “worry beads”.
