A Mala is a string of 108 beads plus a Guru bead.
Malas are used as a tool to help focus the mind on meditation whilst saying a mantra, prayer or positive affirmation. The practice of repeating a mantra using a Mala is called Japa (which translates as ‘muttering’ in Sanskrit).
The benefits of Japa meditation are many, it reduces stress and calms the mind, improves concentration and focus, neutralise negative thoughts & creates positive mood, To practice Japa is a meditation and it also brings us to a deeper state of meditation.
Prayer beads have been used for generations in various spiritual traditions, for example - Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Jainism and Sikhism.
"Had the most amazing experience ever making Japa Beads with Phil. An experience that will last forever in our hearts. Total love Om mani padme hum. Total gratitude Aum."
“Making the Mala with Phil was truly a lovely experience at Creacon. I could make my own decisions in choosing the colours & beads etc. Phil is such a charming person and her support was delightful! This workshop was worth it and my Mala already did positive work on me”
