Mala beads are a useful and beautiful tool used for meditation. They can be worn as a necklace or a bracelet, and usually have 108 mala beads on each strand, though other numbers may be used. They are used to count breaths or the number of times a mantra is repeated by running your fingers over the beads
Traditionally, malas, or garlands of prayer beads, come as a string of 108 beads (plus one for the "guru bead," around which the other 108 beads turn like the planets around the sun)
