A Mala is not a regular necklace.
Malas have been used for thousands of years in yoga and meditation of Buddhism and Hinduism.
Normally, malas are made out of 16, 27, 54 or 108 beads, and each bead of the mala is used to keep count of each time reciting a mantra or the name of a deity.
This kind of meditation is called “Japa” in Sanskrit, and it consists on counting the beads of the mala while reciting a positive affirmation or mantra along each bead to come into a more calming, connected and spiritual state.
A traditional tool for prayer and reflection, the mala has been a part of Satya Jewelry collections since the beginning.
Malas can easily be wrapped around the wrist or it can also be worn as a bracelet, and the 108 beads serve as a reminder to meditate on what is important and sacred in our own lives.
