Sandal Wood Prayer Mala
This mala has a string of 108 beads with one central or terminal bead. It is a tool used to keep your mind on your meditation practice.
There are different ways to “tell the beads” depending on your tradition, be it Tibetan, Buddhist or some other way. In general, the practice begins at the larger or terminal bead and continues around the loop until that bead is reached again. That bead is never passed over. So if you plan to do more than one round, the mala is turned around to proceed again in the reverse direction. After a while of practicing your meditation with a mala, whenever it is taken up, it automatically conditions the mind to the meditative state.
Details5mm beads. About 9" long.
It can be wrapped around your wrist about two times.
Color: Sandal Wood
Made in Tibet
