Mala Beads A mala is a strand of beads, traditionally used for counting during mantra meditations. Malas can consist of 108 beads, 54 beads, 27 beads, 21 or 19 beads. Malas have been used since at least the 10th century as a meditation aid. They allow us to focus the mind on a single pointed task as we work through our meditation. If you practice meditation and yoga, a mala can be a powerful tool in your quest for wellness and clearer understanding. These ones are Rudraksha Mala Beads direct from Rishikesh, India (pronounced roodraksha). A seed from a tree know in India as Krishnas eyes. I like to use Mala Beads in very simple ways. Start by closing your eyes and sitting in a relaxed comfortable position, feeling the texture of the Beads as you roll them through your hands. Really feel each one. Breathe in and breath out. Identify the Guru bead, the one closest to the tassel. Drape over your middle finger and leave the index finger out of the process. The index finger represents the ego. Roll the Beads over the middle finger one by one breathing in and out as you pass that one down towards you. Then repeat with each bead. Sometimes it's good to have a mantra you say as you pass each bead over the middle finger with the thumb. eg. I am....here now I am...pure love I invite..peace now Or anything that resonates for this time in your life. Keep going till you make your way all round to the Guru bead. Then just sit with the whole strand cupped in both hands. Just be. That's it. I hope you find peace whenever you use these.
