Description

The term mala is derived from the Sanskrit word “Japamala,” which is a string of beads used for prayer and meditation by Hindus and Buddhists. The number 108 has spiritual significance and is considered sacred in the Hindu religion.

A mala is a string of 108 beads with one bead as the summit or head bead called a ‘Sumeru.’ Malas are used as a tool to help the mind focus on meditation or count mantras in sets of 108 repetitions. Lotus Seed (Kamal Gatta) is a symbol of Goddess Lakshmi.

These malas can be used as is, or as material in your own art.
