Japa malas are sacred meditation tools similar to Christian rosaries that help connect with the present moment and can also be used as a necklace or bracelet as a complement . In Sanskrit Japa means “repeat prayers” and mala means “meditation garland . The mala allows the meditator to count mantras with his hand while reciting them, its symbolism also allows him to use it as a ritual and mental training object. All of these elements allow the practitioner to approach their spiritual ideals in a very accessible and powerful way.

Do you know what a mantra is? A mantra is a sound, word or phrase that connects with you either psychologically or spiritually and that produces a vibration that, when repeated, calms the mind. In Vedic culture, 108 means the totality of existence and hence chanting, reciting or repeating a mantra 108 times helps align you with the energy of the Universe. The Ja pa mala is not an object of power in itself, it is energy is what the practitioner imbues with the use and recitation of mantras.

108 Beads Mala or Japa Mala Necklace - Mala beads, commonly known as japa mala or simply mala, are a type of prayer beads. Prayer beads have been used for centuries by a variety of religions, from Hinduism to Catholicism.
Today, they are sometimes used as a mindfulness aid without any religious affiliation. They traditionally include 108 beads plus a guru bead, which is larger than the rest of the beads and often has a tassel.

Material : obsidian beads, tiger eye and wood

How can they help?
Mala beads can help you with different aspects of meditation, which is linked to a variety of health benefits. Meditation can help reduce stress levels, improve sleep, and lower blood pressure, among other things. But meditation is not always easy. Many people find it difficult, especially at first, to keep their mind from wandering. That's where the mala beads come in. Mala beads "are meant to keep you focused during meditation," says Lena Schmidt, certified yoga instructor. Schmidt explains two ways a mala can help facilitate meditation:
-The repetitive movement of your fingers across the beads helps you connect.
-Touching each bead while saying a mantra helps you keep track of how many times you have repeated the mantra.
How do I use them?
You can use mala beads in a variety of ways during meditation, but breath control and mantra repetition are two good starting points.
How important is the number of accounts?
Traditional mala necklaces have 108 beads, reflecting a sacred number in both Hinduism and Buddhism.
What is the best way to wear Mala?
When it comes to wearing them, they are becoming more of a fashion statement among those with style and bohemian flair. The tassel will sit low when worn as a necklace, so pair it with a shorter necklace and possibly even a choker. You can also feel the power when you wear them together with your gemstone pieces. Even consider looking for gemstones for additional energy and healing properties. You may also consider raw stones that again emphasize some of the traits you can use in meditation, such as rose quartz for clarity and jade for prosperity or fortune. Traditional malas are almost always worn on the right hand, wrapped around the wrist like a bracelet.

If you are going to use Mala beads, there are some rules you should know. For example, it is not appropriate for your beads, whether necklaces or bracelets, to touch the ground. Also, be sure to cleanse your rosary periodically, or when you feel there has been a lot of negative energy around you. The method generally used is that you wear the beads for a period of 40 days so that they can tune into your energy. You can balance the energy and recharge it by placing it in direct sunlight for a whole day or on the moon at night. It is also suggested that you do not allow others to touch, hold, feel or use them. This is a practice that is currently being debated as they are a useful prayer implement that many can benefit from. If you wish, go ahead and let others handle your rosary as you can always clean them and recharge them later.
