Red Sandalwood Prayer Mala 7mm
$16.00 – $36.00
Japa Malas are used for repetition of a mantra, for other forms of sādhanā or “spiritual exercise” and as an aid to meditation. The use of a mala can help focus your meditation. See the description below to learn how to use a japa mala.
This Japa Mala’s beads have been carved of red sandalwood to form 7mm beads.
To use a mala, you hold it in either hand. Starting just after the Guru bead, you recite a mantra while holding each bead between the thumb and one of the fingers, moving from one bead to the next with each recitation. You basically drape the mala over the finger, and use the thumb to pull the beads over the finger toward you after each recitation of the mantra. This makes the bead pass over the intended meridian point. When reciting a mantra with a mala meditation, you recite the entire mantra on each bead (not one bead per word). You can also use affirmations with your mala, repeating the affirmation with each bead. The recitations can be done silently, as a whisper, in song or spoken out loud. After you have completed a full circle of your mala, you will feel the Guru bead. You can make a special prayer with the Guru bead and then begin again, either switching the hands, turning the mala or just continuing along.
