108 Custom Mala Beads

Design your own Custom Mala Beads in 7 simple steps:

  1. Choose main beads

    Selecting the main beads changes the main photo so you can see how the different beads look, some beads incur an extra cost which is displayed within step 1 and at the final total

  2. Choose a guru bead

    The guru bead is the larger 3 holed bead

  3. Choose end beads or tassel

    • Select 3 end beads with a snake knot – mala beads with a snake knot have a fixed tension
    • Select 3 end beads with adjustable knot – this knot slides up and down to alter the tension of your mala beads
    • or a cotton tassel – choose from 9 different colours
  4. Choose the thread colour

    Select from 13 different colours

  5. Choose counter beads

    Optional – 3 counter beads are placed at intervals of 27 beads to aid in mantra counting.
    If you choose the same main beads and counter beads, we’ll make your mala with smaller counter beads to add contrast.

  6. Choose bead caps & seed beads

    Optional – gold or silver bead caps placed either side of the guru bead and counter beads to enhance the design of your custom mala.

  7. Choose knots between each bead

    Optional – we’ll make your mala with knots between each bead

Buddhist Mala Beads

How to use your Custom Mala Beads

Our 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 & forefinger and silently recite one mantra.
  • Move your thumb and forefinger along to the next bead of the strand 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.
Mantra for blessing your Mala Beads

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 custom mala beads.

How to Care for your Mala Beads

How to Care for your Custom Mala Beads

When not in use please store your custom mala beads in a mala bag.
Please don’t wash your mala or wear whilst bathing or sleeping as this can weaken the mala thread.
To clean your mala: gently wipe the beads using a damp cloth and place in sunlight to dry.

    Great product, received in timely fashion. No complaints.

  2. Vital Gbezo (verified owner)

    I am a proud owner of several custom Mala Beads made by Tibetan Mala Shop. The craftsmanship is exceptional.
    Perfect gifts for anniversaries, birthdays, they are always treasured by the recipients.
    Tibetan Mala Shop products are affordable luxury products; the same quality costs much more elsewhere.

    These mala beads are lovely. Bought as a gift for my husband to replace a cheaper set which, although nice, were nowhere near the quality of these. His birthday is not til April so he hasnt seen them yet,but he chose the sandalwood and turquoise combination himself. Very good quality and beautifully presented.

    Thank you so much for making
    my 108 bead custom mala. I love it so much. The African turquoise is beautiful and the turquoise guru bead and onyx compliments it so well. My practice is deeply enhanced with this precious mala. I love the little bag with the embroidered golden symbol and the wax sealed gold envelope containing all the info about my stone choice. Your care is much appreciated. Warm wishes.
