What is a Mala?
A mala, which is the Sanskrit word for garland, is a string of beads – traditionally 108, in addition to one guru bead at the end of the mala – which is used as a meditation tool while chanting, reciting or silently repeating a mantra. Malas help the one wearing it to focus their mind; they are also often used to recite mantras of 108 repetitions. When not used specifically for meditation, malas can help the one wearing it to carry a sense of peace, mindfulness and focus with them throughout the day.
MalaRae uses only high quality gemstones and crystals in its jewelry, all believed to have very specific healing properties. Click here to find out more about the properties of these gemstones. Our malas are handmade and knotted between each stone. The number of stones in our malas are made to the specific spiritual number of 9
