What is a 108 Bead Mala?
A japamala or mala is a string of 108 beads plus a guru bead used as an aid for meditation and prayer. They have been used for thousands of years as a tool for centering one’s attention. The beads are used to count breath or recite mantras in order to stay present in a meditation practise and can be worn as necklaces or can be wrapped around the wrist.
An Age Old Tradition
At MalasByFlora we are dedicated to providing the highest quality gemstone jewellery both for meditation and crystal healing. All our materials are sourced from the finest manufacturers and are handmade and hand-knotted with the utmost care and love. We are also dedicated to sharing this form of meditation practice while honouring the many different cultures it is inspired by.
Honouring Our Teachers
Meditation cannot be traced back to one single religion or culture as it spans many. Flora’s family roots are in Japan and the Shinto Buddhism religion where beads are used for prayer, but this practice can also be found in Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism and Catholicism. All of our pieces are handmade by us and we are in reverence of the many religions and cultures that meditation beads come from and are happy to be able to share this practice with you.
