A Mala is made of 108 beads and is significant to our 108 working chakras. A Mala is a tool used in meditation or for prayer. You can count each bead as you recite a mantra 108 times; or count each bead as you take a deep breath in meditation 108 times. Extremely helpful for focus. Can also be worn around your wrist when wrapped multiple times or as a necklace.
