Ebonywood Prayer Bead Mala by Om Imports

A mala is a tool for mediitation and prayer and is usually a string of 108 beads with one bead as the summit bead called a 'sumeru'. Malas are generally made from different materials such as tulsi (basil) wood, sandal wood, rudraksh seeds or crystal. Each type of material has certain properties which subtly affect the subconscious mind in meditation. They are sometimes called Prayer beads and most likely is the origin of the Christian Rosary beads as well.

The mala beads are moved in rhythm with the breath and the mantra to help quiet and focus the mind during meditation. Over time, use and wearing, malas absorb the energy and vibrations for which it is used and often the simple of act of picking them up can slip the practicioner into a meditative state.

The mala is traditionally held in the right hand and used in two ways - In one method, the mala is hanging between the thumb and the ring (third) finger. The middle (second) finger is used to rotate the mala by one bead towards oneself with each repetition of the mantra. In the other method, the mala is hanging on the middle finger, with the thumb used to rotate the mala just as explained - one bead at a time.Either way, the index finger is never used to touch the mala.

The practice begins at the summit bead (sumeru) and continues around the loop until the summit is reached again. The summit bead is never passed over. So if you plan to do more than 1 round, the mala is turned around to proceed again in the reverse direction

This strand of mala beads is 6 mm ebony wood beads with tassel. Each is hand strung in India and tassel colors may vary.
