The 108 round beads are carved and polished malachite, a marbled green, crystallized mineral that has the feel of stone.
There is something very special about this mala (necklace), as its unusual prayer beads captivate the eyes while the mantra to the Divine Mother gives it a unique spiritual energy. The corresponding mantra, as well as the significance of the mala, are provided on an attractive insert. Used all over Tibet, south east Asia and India by yogis and buddhists.
Intention: Meditation while focusing on spiritual wealth.
How to use for prayer and meditation: Sit cross-legged in a meditative place and starting with the bead next to the sumeru (the largest bead often with a tassel), holding it with your right thumb and middle finger. Do not touch the sumeru, the 109th bead.
Gently roll the bead back and forth while saying the provided mantra, drawing your attention to the feel of the bead and the sound of the mantra. Do this on each of the 108 beads to complete a round. Do as many rounds as are desired or instructed.
