What is a Mala?
A mala is an eastern version of a rosary, similar to prayer beads
A mala has 108 beads so that if any bead is accidentally skipped, the mantra or breathe is being repeated at least 100 times
It is recommend to choose a mantra and use only that mantra for the same mala. This allows for your manifestations to become totally infused into this mala
If a mantra is not resonating with you one day, feel free to simply take a breath with each bead
Malas are made of beads, stone, wood and even bone.
Malas and yoga go hand in hand...literally! :)

How to Use a Mala for Meditation?
Sitting in a comfortable position, hold your mala in your right hand (in India, the left had is considered impure), with your pointer finger straight out. The large bead is the Guru bead which is how to start japa meditation (mala meditation). Give thanks to all you Gurus and those who have influenced who are you. Then, turning the beads towards you and starting on the right side, start your meditation, bead by bead. This allows you to meditate without having to count your breathes or set a timer.
