How to use your Mala Beads
- Use your mala beads with love & care; they are sacred beads intended for spiritual practice.
- Start with the first bead next to the guru bead (also known as the mother bead the guru bead is often larger and usually has 3 holes).
- Recite the first mantra whilst holding the first bead between thumb and finger.
- Move your thumb over to the next bead and chant the mantra again; repeat 108 times.
- Tibetan mala beads often have 3 counter beads at 27 bead intervals. The counter bead is a good place to stop chanting and resume later. A mala counter can easily be used to indicate where you stopped counting as it neatly clips on between the beads. (Or a tassel mala counter can be used too).
- Once 108 mantras are complete flip the mala round 180 degrees and count the beads in the opposite direction so as not to pass over the guru bead.
Mantra for Blessing your Mala Beads
Recite the mantra seven times, then blow on the mala beads. This mantra increases the power of the mantras you recite using your aquamarine mala beads.
