This traditional Japa Mala rosary is strung with 108 aromatic lotus seed beads and finished with a complementing Guru tassel bead. A Japa Mala is used for aiding one to keep count while chanting, reciting, or mentally repeating a mantra, a practice known in Sanskrit as japa. The number 108 is seen to be very auspicious because it is a product of multiple of three, its digits add up to nine, which is three threes, and three is the number symbolizing the trinity of heaven, earth and mankind luck which produces supreme balance. Counting should always begin with a bead next to the Guru bead, the 109th bead, also called bindu, stupa or sumeru dangled with a tassel. This is a special extra bead that is also meant for you to pause from absorption in meditation and thank your teachers (Guru) when your fingers reach this marker during prayer.

This mala prayer beads can be used for Hindu or Buddhist prayer, ideal for meditation, yoga, puja, sadhana and self-consecration. It should bring spiritual protection, calmness, relaxation and comfort to the wearer when worn as a necklace.

Like the pristine Lotus Flower, which rises up from the muddy depths of water to bloom beautifully on the surface, the Lotus Seed symbolises Spiritual Growth and Enlightenment.

To empower the mala, and the mantra used in association with this mala, japa (mantra meditation) should be practiced once each day for 40 consecutive days. When the mala becomes empowered, it can then be worn to transmit the energy of the mantra and the energetic qualities of the mala to the wearer.  If you use a different mantra, the energy of the previous mantra becomes replaced by the new one.  For this reason, many people have different malas for different mantras.
When not in use, your mala should be stored in a special, clean and preferably sacred space, for example on a personal altar or on a statue of a deity.
