A Mala is a spiritual prayer necklace with 108 beads used for practicing meditation and prayer by reciting a mantra or prayer with each bead. With a full cycle the practitioner can tune into the sound, vibration and meaning of what they are chanting. The Guru bead is at the base of the mala beads and acts as a place to start and end your prayer. The mala is sometimes made with a tassel that represents your connection to spirit.
