How to use your Mala Beads

Our Conch Shell mala beads are suitable for mantra recitation, mindfulness practice, meditation, yoga, prayer & reflection.

  • The meditation mala is generally held in the left hand and used with gentleness and respect.
  • One bead is counted for each recitation of the mantra, starting with the first bead next to the “guru” bead. The guru bead is usually larger & more decorative.
  • Hold the first mala bead between your thumb & finger and silently recite one mantra.
  • Using your thumb pull the next bead towards you to chant the next mantra; then repeat.
  • After completing a full circuit of the mala, flip the mala around 180 degrees (this takes some practice) and continue as before, in reverse order.
  • One avoids passing over the “guru” bead, as doing so is symbolically like stepping over one’s teacher.
