A mala is originally used as a tool during meditation to count your mantras.
Every mala counts 108 beads + the guru bead and a tassel.
108 is a sacred number.
The extra guru bead, stands for the knowledge and the wisdom
that you already have inside you.
The tassel stands for the roots of the lotus flower.
With every mantra you can move to the next bead,
so you keep your mind focussed.
The mala's that are made from gemstones add an extra healing level to your practice.
When choosing a mala, use your intuition first!
