Handcrafted 108 bead Mala necklaces used for meditation and chanting. 108 has long been considered a sacred number in Hindu tradition.
To use a mala, hold it in your right hand. Drape the mala between your middle and index fingers.
Starting with the guru bead (the large bead in the center of the necklace) begin counting your the beads through your thumb and index finger reciting your mantra or use it to count your asanas in sun salutations. Work through all of the beads, eventually making your way back to the guru bead.
When you reach the guru bead, pause, and take focus on your breath, this would complete 108 repetitions.
Once you reach the guru bead you can continue working back around the mala counting each bead again.
