Mala beads are customarily used in Buddhist practice to count mantras, as chanting beads, or as a part of ceremony garb. But these days people from all walks of life wear malas as a constant reminder of the spiritual path. Our malas are made from woods, such as cedar and rosewood, lotus seeds, and semi-precious stones such as quartz, turquoise and obsidian. We have chosen a variety of colors, lengths, and bead sizes. We hope you find one (or two or three) you like!
