Anatomy of Mala Beads
“WE ARE ALL BEADS STRUNG TOGETHER ON A UNIVERSAL THERAD OF LOVE” AMMA
Mala beads are a set of beads that have traditionally been used in prayer and meditation — often called prayer beads.
Our mala beads can be worn by anyone seeking a calmer mind, body, and spirit and are perfect for japa meditation.
Here we break down all the different parts of our authentic malas:
Overhand Knotting – Chanting Stork malas are hand knotted between each bead and gemstone. This makes the malas stronger, and gives perfect space for japa meditation.
Guru Bead – This bead is believed to represent the student-guru relationship.
Tassel – We believe the tassel of your mala acts as a link, between the thread of love that the beads are strung on and the intention the mala represents for you. As the strands combine together into one, it represents connection. Oneness.
Gemstones – They help bring different qualities and intentions in to each piece.
