Whether you practice yoga and meditation regularly, or if you like the idea of wearing a piece of jewelry that reminds you of a goal, emotion, or way of living, you may want to consider using mala beads. Mala beads are also referred to as malas, Buddhist beads or Buddhist prayer beads. Mala beads have been used in Buddhism and Hinduism for centuries. Our ORIGINAL TASSEL MALAS feature a classic pairing of wood beads and a cotton tassel, and are perfect for keeping count during mantra meditations. If you're ready to spice things up a bit, try our MODERN GEM MALA with gemstones that match the intention of your practice. These are perfect to wear as everyday jewelry or placed in shrines as a reminder of your affirmations. If you enjoy a light weight, smaller mala, our MINI 108 MALA is the way to go!
