Mala Beads

£3.00

ex. VAT

 

Our wooden mallah beads are made using 108 individual beads, which is a particularly auspicious number in Buddhism, and finished with a coloured tassel to represent the end of the chant.

The number 108 can be interpreted in many ways. One popular interpretation is that the 1 represents the path, the 0 represents the circle of life and the 8 represents the infinity loop.

Malla beads are similar in practice to a Catholic rosary and are used to aid meditation and prayer.
