A Prayer mala is a set of Beads commonly used by Hindus and Buddhists. Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a Mantra or the name or names of a Deity. This Practice is known in Sanskrit as Japa. Malas are typically made with 16, 27, 54 or 108 beads.

Doing one 108-bead mala counts as 100 mantra recitations; the extra repetitions are done to amend any mistakes.

Mala @ PrayerMala are Hand made, knotted after each bead, perfect 108 stone bead, One Guru bead, Tassel and Charged with Mantras. You can select the stone, color of the string, color of the Tassel & The Guru Bead.

Mantras are typically repeated hundreds or even thousands of times. The mala is used so that one can focus on the meaning or sound of the mantra rather than counting its repetitions. One repetition is usually said for each bead while turning the thumb around each bead, though some traditions or practices may call for counterclockwise motion or specific hand and finger usage. When arriving at the Guru bead, both Hindus and Buddhists traditionally turn the mala around and then go back in the opposing direction. Within the Buddhist tradition, this reversing of the beads serves to remind practitioners of the teaching that it is possible to break the cycle of birth and death.

Vedic astrology is a form of astrology derived from the traditions of ancient India. Because of this, Vedic Astrology is particularly good for those who do yoga or meditate, or are interested in ayurvedic medicine.
