Why 108 Beads?
Buddhist Prayer Beads have 108 beads; 108 is an auspicious number in Buddhism as there are said to be 108 kleshas or impure thoughts. In addition, after chanting 100 mantras 8 extra mantras are chanted to allow for any that were chanted when concentration lapsed.
Tibetan prayer beads often have counter beads at 27 bead intervals to aid the counting process (this is why some of our malas & beaded glasses chains have 111 beads … 108 beads + 3 counter beads = 111 beads)
