What is a Mala?
A Mala is a set of prayer beads traditionally used for yoga and meditation practice. Each bead represents the repetition of a mantra or the count of a breath. A mala is typically composed of 108 beads, as the number 108 is considered sacred in many spiritual traditions. In addition to using a mala for meditation, it can also be worn as a talisman to remind us to live in the present moment.
