What is a Mala?

Mala is a ring of prayers. It's a manifestation of an intention somewhere deep inside to improve ourselves. Malas are a fantastic way to steal, focus and centering yourself …it’s a form of meditation.

 

Mala beads have been used in Buddhism and Hinduism for centuries . Malas are typically made with secred number of 9,18, 27, 54 or 108 beads. Mala its for doing "Japa", Japa means repitation of mantra or holy names. The purpose of using mala is in three ways to focusing your mind . The mantra, the sensation of the fingers, and the intention.

 

How to use your Mala: The purpose of the Mala is to focus your mind - this is done in three ways. 1) The mantra, 2) the sensation of the fingers, and 3) the intention. When you pray, alway use your Mala with your right hand...never use your index finger. The index finger is used to accuse or point blame. Use the 2nd finger of Saturn, it is karma. The things that we have to change, transform, learn, and burn in our lives. Each bead represents one repetition of the prayer. Wearing your Mala beads around your neck or wrist can be a way to remind yourself to stay present and be mindful in your daily life.

 

How to charge a Mala: keep it in your aura for 40 days. If you want to change a mala from someone else’s energy, or change the mantra, put it in himalayan salt, or you can keep it in full moon light for the night.
