What are Mala Beads & Buddhist Prayer Beads?
Mala Beads, or prayer beads, are a set of sacred rosary beads used for chanting & counting mantras, meditation, prayer, yoga & reflection.
Mala is a Sanskrit word meaning garland. The Tibetan word for mala is threngwa.
Buddhist Prayer Beads are sometimes referred to as Japa mala, japa is a Sanskrit word meaning “repeat internally”.
Our malas are available with 108 beads and wrist mala bracelets with 18, 21 & 27 beads.
We design and hand-craft our Buddhist prayer beads to an exact and high standard, our malas are made with great attention to detail using A grade & AA grade gemstones which we cleanse & bless before shipping worldwide from UK.
We are a small family run business with our mala bead workshop located in the grounds of our home. We will continue to offer quality mala beads & meditation products during these times of uncertainty.

A mantra is a subtle, inner sound or word that is repeated to aid concentration during meditation. It is an expression of the deepest essence of our understanding & transcends external words & sounds.
We also offer a mala repair service for rethreading your rosary. The thread we use comes in a variety of colours, it is strong & specifically designed for prayer beads, however everything is impermanent!
Meditation and mantra recitation increases calmness, balance, patience, energy levels and positive thinking. We can create a gap in the incessant stream of thought by focusing on the breathing.
Hold the first bead (the one next to the larger guru bead) between your finger and thumb, recite one mantra, move your thumb and finger along to the next bead; recite the next mantra; then repeat.
