A Mala is a simple, sacred and effective meditative tool for prayer and reflection. Traditionally consisting of 108 beads, it can help to amplify intention, reduce stress and enhance wisdom, patience and health. You can use a mala with or without a mantra. Always start with the bead next to the Guru (the biggest) bead at the beginning of the mala. Then move each bead with the thumb towards the body over the meridian point located on the side of each finger, between the tip of the finger and the first knuckle. Thus, the Guru bead descends and eventually ascends to be the last bead of your meditation. As you hold the Guru bead, repeat your mantra and make a prayer.
