A mala is originally a prayer chain from Hinduism and Buddhism and is used in meditation to count mantras. A mantra is a collection of words, often from Sanskrit, which is repeated several times – traditionally 108 times. Here, you focus your attention on the meaning and vibration of the words, possibly combined with the accompanying visualization. By training yourself in a meditation exercise like this, your thoughts come to rest and your body starts to relax. Nowadays a mala is also worn as a fashion accessory.
