The mala is an ancient spiritual tool that’s been used for thousands of years to help keep an accurate count of mantras during a meditation. The mala is made up of gemstones or beads that become infused with the energy that’s channeled into them through a mantra repetition. By creating a special mala necklace or bracelet worn directly on the skin, you can keep the energetic properties of the beads close to you. Malas can take on even more of a special meaning when you make them for yourself or as the perfect handmade gift for someone else.

The Anatomy of a Mala

Beads

Traditionally, a mala has 108 beads, but you can use factors of 108, such as 18, 27, 36, or 54, to make a shorter mala that can be worn as a bracelet.

Also with tradition, sandalwood, or tulsi beads are used in malas; however, any gemstone that has the energetic properties highly encouraged.

Guru Bead

The guru bead is the bead that the tassel will attach directly to. The guru bead symbolizes the student-guru relationship and is to be respected. When using a mala for mantra repetition, you will never skip over the guru bead.

Tassel

The tassel is the cluster of string at the bottom of the mala. Each strand of the tassel is an extension of the cords that bind the necklace together and our connection to the divine and one another.

Overhand Knotting

A true sign of a traditionally crafted mala is a simple hand knot in between each bead. Overhand knotting not only makes the mala stronger but also provides the perfect amount of space between beads.

This is one of a kind necklace.  I will only be making one mala at a time to keep the specialness of the necklace.
