Malas are also known as Japa Mala and have been utilised in various religious practices as in Buddhism and Hinduism for example as an aid in prayer and reciting of sacred texts. In Christianity they have been known as Rosary Beads. The beads keep track of how many times a person is reciting out loud or in their minds a prayer, a mantra or an affirmation. Today, it is mostly utilised as a help for mindfulness, meditation and in affirmation practices or as a sacred piece of jewellery for aroma therapy.
The number of 108 has great significance in many cultures around the world. The great mathematicians of the Vedic culture viewed 108 as the number of the "WHOLENESS OF EXISTENCE". Astronomists wrote about 27 constellations in our galaxy and each has 4 directions and when we calculate that up we get to again to the sacred number of 108 (4x27) This would mean that the number 108 covers the whole galaxy!
This Mala is uniquely handcrafted in Bali for us and the sales are supporting a small family business of master beaders. May this Mala help you in the unfolding of your journey and bring you joy and a sense of serenity.
