How to Use a Mala:
A "mala" is a set of mantra counting beads. A mantra is a word or statement repeated personally or aloud with sincerity, devotion, feeling and deep attention. The overall intention is to naturally allow the attention to lead to deep concentration, which in turn allows for meditation and eventually "samadhi", to acquire wholeness, or truth. This mala contains 108 beads, as this number is considered sacred by many eastern religions and spiritual groups. To use the mala, begin at the guru bead, the larger bead at its base. Drape the first mala bead, the one next to the guru on your right, in between your thumb and middle finger. Slide your thumb over the first mala bead down and move to the next. Repeat this movement for a count of 108 beads. You may focus on your breathing, moving past each bead as you take an “in breath” or an “out breath”.
