The term Mala is derived from the Sanskrit word Japamala. Japa is the meditative repetition of a mantra.
The history of Malas is vast and it's believed to have originated in India back in the 8th-century B.C.E.
Malas are an important part of our ancestor tradition and are a garland of 108 prayer beads, plus a Guru bead.
108 is a significant number in the Vedic mathematics tradition in India as its viewed as the number of the wholeness of existence.
There are 108 pithas, or sacred sites, throughout India and there are also 108 Upanishads (are a collection of texts of religious and philosophical nature) and according to Ayurveda, there are 108 marma (vital) points in the body.
Each bead can represent powerful intentions, prayers, and affirmations. Malas have been known to bring soothing to your daily life, whether you use them in your meditative practice or whether you wear them as a constant reminder of your inner light and power.
