The History of Malas

Malas are Buddhist prayer beads. The most common Malas have 108 beads made of an array materials such as wood, Rudraksha seeds, shells, pearls, bone, saffron, gold, silver, copper, amber, and semi-precious stones. Depending on if you are trying to recite mantras, count your breaths, overcome obstacles, purify and cleanse, or increase abundance and prosperity different materials and number sequences are suggested.

It is often said that the mantra used for our intent does not have to be traditional. If we did not grow up speaking Sanskrit, then do not worry about memorizing 108 Tibetan mantras in that tongue. One of my gurus of sorts told me if I want peace and calm, then recite “peace and calm” with each passing bead. The purpose is to ingrain your intent into your subtle bodies by using repetition.
