    • Select 3 end beads with adjustable knot – this knot slides up and down to alter the tension of your mala beads

    Optional – 3 counter beads are placed at intervals of 27 beads to aid in mantra counting.

How to use your Custom Malas

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.

How to Care for your Custom Mala

When not in use please store your custom malas in a mala bag.
Please don’t wash your mala or wear whilst bathing or sleeping as this can weaken the mala thread.
