Prayer beads or malas are used for what is called Japa Yoga. Japa helps the mind to become still, disciplined and cooperative. It is a great preparation for meditation and actually helps speed up the effect of meditation. This can be done anytime to help quiet the mind from forming negative thoughts or pictures. Regular practice will lead to success and will help you in any spiritual or religious practice. Our 108 beaded malas can be made with standard wood, semi-precious gemstones, rudraksha beads, or sacred woods. For custom options beyond what is listed here, contact us and we will be happy to create your own specific mala or inform you of what is in stock in our shop.
