How to use your Mala

Carnelian mala ~ suitable for mantra recitation, mindfulness practice, meditation, yoga, prayer & reflection.

  • Treat your mala 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.
